Carolien Wissing Artist Bio:

Carolien Wissing (1976) makes canvases in a sober color palette, on which major architectural, abandoned buildings can be identified. Twenty years ago Carolien moved from the countryside to the city to study at the Academy of Fine Art. She graduated as an ‘Architectural designer’ but during her study she found out, she was much more fascinated by absorbing the atmosphere of environment. Carolien gets inspired by the peri-urban fringe where the existence of culture fades and slowly merges into the landscape of nature. ___________________________________________ Since 10 years Carolien is a full time painter and the range of subjects begins to widen. With her recent series ‘Illuminated’ nature has unexpectedly made its entrance. Impressive creatures look inexpugnable and estranging to the viewer. No matter what the subject is, Wissing creates compositions where the spectator is almost sucked, as if you were part of it. ___________________________________________ Carolien often organizes her own exhibitions. In a large factory for example or on a deep sea trawler. 'Good ideas need to be worked out. It is the same actually as when I see a thing of beauty. It can be a anything, a ray of light or a certain color. Such a shame to let it drop on the ground when I could have caught it.’ ___________________________________________ More information: www.carolienwissing.com - 'projects' ___________________________________________ Wissings artworks are purchased by: de Key housing association Gsus Industries Amsterdam museum NIOD RWS several private collections
