Carine Van Hee is a Belgium based artist, born in Blankenberge and now living and working near Mechelen (close to Brussels).
She has drawn artistic inspiration from the joy of seeing Jonas Gerard at work, and, especially, the strong use of colors in the work of Gerhard Richter. Richter’s expertize in layering and his use of colors that keep their brightness, is what influenced Carine. She admires the braveness in the work of Jackson Pollock and Shozo Shimamoto as well.
Carine uses a very colorful palette, and hence, one would never suspect that life has hit her hard. Turbulences in her private life and the scars these have left, transpire into her art that tells a unique story of feminine vulnerability, resilience and strength.
