The Arch is happy to present Dutch painter Anouk van Zwieten. Her colourful paintings are a response to what she encounters in and around her studio in Utrecht. Focusing on objects that on a subconscious level influence our mind, Van Zwieten acts like an observer. Given the fact that she paints intuitively and her direct environment is mostly safe and quiet, these objects are often the ordinary kind, such as shoes, a plate or a tree. Starting with a quick sketch, Van Zwieten then keeps adding layers, combining abstract forms with figurative shapes, finalizing it with energetic rough brushstrokes on the surface.
