BARBARA VAN DEN BERG
My art is about making contact.I wanted to understand and express what I saw and felt, I mainly did this by drawing and painting at a very young age.
Later I expressed this in making art of people grouped together looking for contact. Everyone screams for attention, but nobody really sees the other. You feel friction between what we show on the outside and what we feel on the inside. I play with this paradox, with bright, vivid colors that leave the appearance of happiness and celebration.
