MARLEEN STEGEMAN - Holland
I was born in a village in the Netherlands near to the German border, I think about it as pleasant was often in the woods with my sketchpath all trough the years.
I always was different then other childeren for example, at the age of 15 years my father asked me what kind of schooling I would like to go too, I answer him becoming ? but I am already.
I went from home at 17 years of age, I was sure that with social stydies good contribute to a better world, I liked the study but it wasn’t changing anything at all it was a study with ups-and-downs.
After it I realized it was poetry, painting, sculptor and music that was my world and dedicated my whole life to art.
My parents didn’t understand me, they were to narrow minded.
One of my poems:
Live my life
With coloured wings
Reach for the stars
Oh what beauty it brings
Live life to the fullest
So no opportunity missed
Living my life
With coloured wings
Now I am living with my partner, a sculptor who helps me with my business I am not very good with that it’s not really my thing
It is a Dutch artist
Has sold everywhere is present on the major catalogues and magazines of the sector has recently made a great exhibition in Rome in the mythical Via Margutta and today is known throughout Italy with some of her works so everone can see and maybe validate her splendid works. As for her painting I must immediately say that it is a unique painting in the sense
that she has managed to invent her own personal style that I have rarely seen so far. The main message of her painting is freedom but also above all feminine emancipation so a great attachment to life understood as a conviviality among human beings and this make us see it very well
through these wonderful works … .. (Talking about the works)
Besides she loves poetry very much, she has written many and this
second passion of hers also transported her paintings, in fact we see very well this poetic vein through the grace and elegance of how she proposes her figures that are never trivial but have always something specific and precise and are the same figures that transmit us so much serenity and tranquillity prijselijk to define that sense of freedom I men tioned earlier and which they enjoy. The freedom referred to by the artist is not only intended as a detachment from external approches but is also
a freedom in a spiritual sense where human beings are free to express their beliefs and religious identity without imposition
As for painting, we must immediately say that the artist has looked at the great masters of the past seizing some secrets while remaining automous and yet having her ownpersonal style. There are the geometries of Paol Klee there is the decomposition of the figures of Picasso,there are the colours of Cezanne there are the portraits of Matisse
So in addition to being a great artist she is also a great scholar she studied art history and studied the great artists of the past
So we can say that she gives free her imagination by carefully describing all the phases of the human being
It is ajourney that the artits deepens through her long experience
Because she travelled a lot and met saw many populations up close
The artist gives life to the reality of natural places and objects that are cloaked in mystery and magic by involving,
the artist in a interpretation of scenarios we could almost say timeless, but she deepens above all the sharing of human beings as a lasting understanding
