Pieternel Elsen (1969) started young with drawing and painting. The animal kingdom is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for her. The beauty and movement of animals each in a different emotion processes and that is reflected in her paintings an expressionist realistic appearance. The scene is becomming more visible as the paint with the spatula on the painting layer on layer is applied. While painting creates the color and movement and they challenge each other to find balance and counterbalance.
Everything starts with an impression, an emotion with love and empathy displayed. The powerful and graceful movement of a horse; the looks of animals, character. This leaves an image behind what really appeals Pieternel, she has to put this on her canvas. In the most works Pieternel makes de viewer experiences the world of animals up close. The images are, as it were magnified so that some details are very clear and others disappear in shape and movement. The unmistakable characteristic movements and forms of animals around us, horses, birds, farm life, hunting life and the African Wildlife.
