An impression of Merel's art

COLOUR RULES MY HEART, COLOUR RULES MY WORLD

 

Merel finds inspiration in an adventurous trip through Africa. Tuscany in Italy, the plains and hills around Saragossa, Spain, and the desolate splendour of the Alentejo, Portugal, the colours of India. Landscape fades away, only colour and light remain; light is a most essential thing. Merel puts it this way: “First I was enchanted by light, and the whole world was my inspiration. Now there are men all around me, coming very close. He is there, he stays there, and I can’t and won’t ignore him. And though my heart and head are completely filled with colours, there are also words, words meaning signs and marks, impressions which are mine, yours, I paint, paint right from my soul.”
