Laurien Renckens

“The canvas is more than words an attempt to reach the essence”

Dutch artist Laurien Renckens, based in the Netherlands, experienced an enormous development in her work. During that period she constructed, scraped off, started new and painted layer over layer. “My work is now getting transparent more and more. It is a mission to emptiness in which I experience the perfection”. She explores to touch the essence with the fewest possible means, no noise, absolute in the gesture of brush and color, straight in the moment.

 

Her paintings don’t tell a story, she starts from zero. Like Rothko said; “A painting is not about an experience, it is an experience”.

 

Finally the painting belongs to the viewer, without title, free to discover, the artist is already immersed in a new minimal artwork…
