About Eveline van Bogerijen
She lives and works in Spain (Sant Ferriol, near Barcelona).
Over the years her paintings became abstract works.
Years ago she found a source of inspiration in old walls and floors with visible traces of the past. Here she discovered concepts such as time, space, mysticism, poetry and vulnerability. And here she finds her own stories.
Through her paintings she reacts to this in an abstract language. Square and rectangular areas indicate, together with many visible layers, space and depth on the canvas. Time is shown by numerous of scratches, spots and lines made with various materials and gives the work a sensitive and poetic character. Her paintings look like old floors and walls with their own history, secrets and symbols.
“Nothing is forever, except change”.
This saying of Buddha is for her and her work very applicable.
