Mieke Teirlinck – Portraits


With decisive oilpaint brush strokes M. Teirlinck paints figurative portraits, nudes, landscapes and still lifes. Sometimes she also works conceptual.
Everything is painted wet-in-wet : models sit, landscapes are painted “en plein air”, preferably in one sitting.

Austerity is essential in her work. Only the subject is painted in an extremely delicate play of light and shadow.

Honesty prevails. She doesn’t use distracting backgrounds, settings or frames.
