Artist's Description

Eveline Gevaert
The bubbles of love
The stars in the sky represent my impulses that well up like little bombs of passion. They come and go very fast. I try to catch them in my paintings, and remember them like a wonderful old song , every time I look at it, I listen to the music in my painting.
Northern lights
I am inspired by darkness. How a person can suffer and fight but eventually can free himself of all her problems and finally understands what it is all about. That’s the point where you see light in the darkness.
The subject that I find the most interesting in my paintings is the human face. They are icons attached to a human body. They give an impression of security surrounded by darkness and northern lights.
Sexuality is a difficult subject, but I want to show that it can be healthy and beautiful. I like to paint subjects that people usually oppress. Being ashamed of something is an emotion of fear, caused by cultural principals. In my paintings I like to relief you and make you feel relaxed and hypnotized by the power of free expression. It never is in my intentions to shock anyone.
Fantasy art
I interpret my dreams through my visual art, using a mix of traditional and contemporary expressions. I am attracted by strong colors. Color is something that makes people happy. I am a fantasy artist, what officially means that you paint something from your imagination without having any example. The goal of fantasy is creating something that looks unreal.
Fantasy art is the contemporary offspring of symbolic art in the late 19th century. Symbolic artists like : George Minne , Klimt , Mucha , Khnoppf , Rossetti , inspired fantasy artists. Fantasy is only one name for the large scale of thousands of artists that make fantasy art. Actually there are so many different fantasy styles that all fantasy artists should come together and find a new name for their art . This could be a project. Like the surreal art in the 20th century : the group of Salvador Dali and Renee Magriette. There were so many surrealists, many of them weren’t good at marketing and however they made wonderful art, they died lonely in their studio and nobody knew about their art or had the opportunity to publish it.
