About this Artwork
Color and luminosity define the work of Greet Helsen. Her paintings are best described as abstract landscapes, informed by her memories of personal encounters with nature.
Working not from a precise recollection of forms, but rather from impressions of colors, shapes, lines and light, Helsen begins each new painting by carefully mixing and diluting her acrylic paints, seeking not only the perfect hue but also the perfect level of translucency.
Each layer is allowed to shine through the next, resulting in sumptuous, textured images full of energy, vitality and depth.
