About Jenny van Gimst

Jenny van Gimst - Wechelderzande, Belgium:

Art has always been my passion.

Architect 2I knew from a very early age art was going to be the most important in my life. It takes practice and patience to be a full time artist and I am finally able to devote as much as possible to my studio work.

I want to take the object out of his usual environment and put it in a new one, as if I can decide how it has to live or die.

For me the object is the individual so if I take the object out of his usual environment and put it in a new one, I can rule his life.

I call my work families: my settings / associations / stones / they are all moments of balance where the structure of the surface is for everything different. Therefore, I have to reflect everything differently and the best possible. My way of working is to display the character of the object as faithfully as possible.

I prefer working with things lived, used, rusted, broken, since it’s these things that make the greatest challenge. A broken piece of glass, old paint, photographs. These things painted correctly gives them a new life, a dimension more often.

Beauty is hidden in everything, you only have to see it. So if I can seduce the viewer, is this not the intention of making art? The audience provided that he or she takes the time to stand still.
