KARIN GIELEN constructs a visual language based on intuition, unconscious lingerings and unpredictable outcomes. With a creative spontaneity, she aims to express the fleetingness of thoughts, emotions and actions, continuously questioning the significance of them all. Karin's vocabulary embraces different media, exploring the possibilities of their intermixture and the effect they have on each other. Broad confident brush strokes are juxtaposed with fragile pencil lines. Painterly passion and constant uncertainty are equally present.
