Artists Statement

 

Connie van Winssen gets inspired by organic forms.
Composition, colours and contrasts are more important than the subject itself.
She abstracts by means of cropping, colour changes and the removal of/ or emphasis on certain aspects.
The pleasure of painting always comes first.
Powerful, expressive and knowingly accessible work is the result.
