More than a personalized artistic work, a deeply human experience!
After the great success of January 2023 (we were sold out), we decided to give you a new opportunity to live this unique experience!
Live painting of YOUR Portrait “Les Yeux Dans Les Yeux”. Through her drawings, Véronique van der Wielen (Belgium) immortalizes an invisible movement, an energy, an emotion, an authentic encounter. Without being looked at, her paper welcome her gesture in one and only one line.
During a week-end, Véronique will be present in our gallery and will propose a real live portrait experience, for you, your beloved one, your friends or yet your colleagues.
Take the time to sit down, to discuss with our artist, to let yourself be watched, with this sincerity of the link to oneself and the other.
The drawings will be witnesses of the encounter, the acknowledgment and the acceptance of “who you are”, here and now.
You will experience a moment of sharing, a recognition and a confirmation of “who you are”, here and now.
Bio: In her second life, Véronique learnt drawing techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts,. Her speciality: the living model, in movement. She learns to observe the body, its oscillations, “what is”, without judgment. One of her training courses led her to become interested in intuitive art, through the discovery of the portrait. This is how the project “Les Yeux Dans Les Yeux” was born. This intuitive work led her to the authentic contact with the human being, in Belgium, and during numerous expeditions – Mongolia, Nepal, India, Southern Europe. Captivated by the expression of emotions, she also learned the technique of “Family Constellations”. I quickly discovered that the power of portraiture reinforces and completes this therapeutic work. To date, she has portrayed more than 700 people, from here and elsewhere, “Les Yeux Dans Les Yeux”.
“These “shared glances” are my source of inspiration, the foundation of my artistic approach which I use in different forms: street art, exhibitions, performances, individual consultations”.
