Anouk Slegers, autodidact, 1961, got her passion for art from her parents. However dreaming of a carriere in restaurating art life took her a different way Untill she started living in the south of Spain were she had the honor to be accepted in the art studio of her well beloved Malagueño painter Juan Bejar. His technique and motivation made her decide to continue with her passion. Now she is a full time painter.
Painting in the Old Masters technique with its many layers give her paintings the soft silky transparent finish, which stands fir her inner personality. She uses small symbolic or surrealistic additions to create a message or humor. Her titels are carefully choosen and do not always cover the first climpse of the sweet looking although frozen images. Social topics are not avoided. The high demand of customer made paintings are a great challenge for her to add mainly symbols out of their personal life into a painting. Never expect a look alike painting.
She creates her painting in oil on canvas, printed fabric, wooden panel or linen in which she likes the leave the wooden and linen uncovered being fascinated by the natural background of it.
"Anyhow it fascinates me to evaluate the whole proces untill it finishes. Can you finish too much?" Is a painting ever finished?"
"This is no longer a hobby but became more of a passionate lifestyle"
" I like to challenge the viewer to find their own interpretation which can change over time"
