A short profile of Alberte: “Born in Belgium, Alberte Lemmens grew up in a family where drawing and painting were a gift. It is only in 1996 that she started painting classes, theory and practice, working indoors and outdoors (Venice, Bruges, ..) she progressed. Watercolour was used in different subjects and evolved into abstraction after a period of 10 years.
From there on she progressively moved on to acrylic and oil on canvas. Her works, first figurative, very soon became more abstract allowing much more freedom for imagination and creativity. Inspiration mostly comes from nature, land and sea.
“My work is based on a quiet, simple abstract environment where natural elements are blended into a structured background, be it a mixture of concrete with sand, silk paper or fabric, allowing to capture the light that will vary according to the angle you look at.
It is spontaneous, starting from a vibrant harmony of colours and hues, it develops intuitively at the moment of painting.
