“I find my inspiration in the relationship between the human body and the human mind”

Angéline Catteeuw (born in 1983, living in Ghent) has been conducting her own very personal investigation of technique and figuration in painting. Her style evolved during recent years from realistic figurative towards figural abstract. Her images always start from reality, but in her search towards the essence of an image, she eliminates all illustrative aspects. In her opinion, narratives derive from the true meaning of a picture. When looking at her work, you might confront yourself instead of perceiving an external story. The themes of her works are individuality, existential loneliness and transience.
