'My imagery says more than a thousand words'

Leonie Maréchal (Eindhoven 1948)  

She is born in the city center of Eindhoven and grew up in Drentsdorp 'under the smoke of Philips'. From an early age, painting and drawing has always been part of her life, where love for art and nature at home is self-evident and for her a way to connect her 'inside and outside world' while painting. She has a classical education in fine-art and a  art education at the Academy for Visual Arts in Belgium, her visual language is mainly about nature and the world around her, which she elaborates in a quiet and expressive way. She goes her own way and intuitively works directly on linen or paper with acryl, oil paint, charcoal and uses the spatula, brush and her hands.
From home she has acquired the feeling for the religious, which is best for her in nature. She paints landscapes [Back to nature'] sometimes with a limited color palette, looking for structures, expressiveness, the deserted, sometimes desolate landscape, stillness, the play of light contrasts and graphic lines of trees and organic forms with perhaps a romantic touch. Maréchal also works on commission.
