Marlies Lebesque

Born in Heerlen 1951

It starts with perceptions, insights that are linked with feelings. Through awareness, I try to get a hold of these perceptions. My note books can attest to that.I write down the analysis through a visualization process. By searching for the right words (metaphors) a visual translation appears. This is how I show my vision of reality, most often through abstract visual language. Abstract art is not just playing with form and color. It speaks and makes statements. In addition, there are expressive elements such as movement, harmony, rest, emptiness, chaos and clarity that can enhance abstract work.
In this way, my abstract art can even reflect the sensitive qualities of our existence. Abstract art can show the invisible such as the emptiness, the other, the fragmented of our contemporary existence. These are recurring subjects.
