About

Belgian artist Greet Helsen masterfully layers acrylic paint with a transparency of watercolor paint in her large mixed media artworks. The shimmering colored areas are superimposed and transparent and are accentuated by ink lines and white light reflecting fields of color. This process produces artworks with unmistakable lightness and softness. Her artworks include unique textures and beautiful details in the surfaces. They have been exhibited in numerous international art galleries and art fairs and have been collected worldwide. In addition to several layers of acrylic paint, Helsen subtly uses ink and other mixed media to compliment the fields of colors, adding depth within her works. This colorful artwork is 31 inches square. It is framed in a modern white wood frame. It is signed on the front lower right corner by the artist. It is wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable U.S. and global shipping options available. A Certificate of Authenticity issued by the gallery is included. Greet Helsen was born in 1962 in Hoogstraten, Belgium. Following her graduation in 1984 from her art studies with B. Assenza she continued her independent educational and artistic works. In 1986 Helsen founded her own art school in Dortmund, Germany which she also directed for twelve years. In 1995, her son Mathias was born. After a three year hiatus she gave classes until 2012 at the Assenza art school in Münchenstein. She then took over the management of the NetzWerk art school Münchenstein, Switzerland. She has been exhibiting her works internationally, including Galerie Reitz Cologne since 2011 and Artspace Warehouse Los Angeles since 2013.
