Art Description | D E F O R M S E R I E S 2 0 1 6 / 2 0 1 7
Everything changes around us over the years as we do.. moments of reconsideration and learning points. Over the years I hope that people learn that it’s of no importance how you look, where you
are from or what you do for a living. The only thing of importance (from my own perspective) is truthfulness to yourself, and being able to give and share in life and being surrounded by the people
that you want to be surrounded by.
And also please accept people how there are and don’t judge all the time it’s so easy… See it as a challenge to learn more about something or someone before the judgement comes.
About Chantal Van Houten
I was born in 1979 in the Netherlands. In 2005 I finished the academy of media and art in Amsterdam and worked several years as a graphic designer. Art is for me is bringing emotion, I love it when a painting really get's to you, gives you a little tickling. The image is leading to imagination and comes alive for the person who looks at it. With my paintings primarily figurative and portraits I want the viewer to experience different emotions. Expression on faces and postures tells so much and can really be inspiring and emotional. I also want people to think harder about certain subjects, issues that can't be denied anymore, environmentally and about humantity..
