Ilse Verstraete

Born in: 1979


Ilse Verstraete is a Belgium artist born in Ghent in 1979.

Her work is based upon self-made images. Attention goes to everyday situations, people, squares ... It is often seen as a means to structure a new reality.

Image selection takes up a great part. Choices – sometimes an underlying theme – are a result of intuitive, non-rational contemplation. Things are not always specified. Suggestion, mysteriousness, and intimacy are noticeable.

The work is multi-interpretable. The spectator is invited to read the work on different levels. Recognition is possible in various steps. The work leaves scope for imagination and filling in one's own reality. Not the kind of feeling, but the sense of feeling is important.

Above all, it is poetry of reality.
