Born in 1966 - France
Véronique Engels was born in Lille in 1966. She lives between Tunisia and France today.
Completely self-taught, Véronique Engels draws inspiration from her travels. Very attracted by the Hindu philosophy which she studied, she left to discover India in 1998. Her long haul went up to Eastern Asia, she crossed Thailand and Laos, before getting to Morocco and then in Tunisia.
Véronique Engels considers painting as a sensitive and not a mental act. Just like music, this art is a medium which allows her to touch and talk about the soul. The invisible aspect is at the heart of her research work and she tries to unveil this through art. She questions the senses of the spectator, and this way she is able to breath life in her paintings.
Not abstract or completely figurative, her work is more expressionist but isn't completely defined. In fact she is glad by this blurry frontier, therefore speaks about free figuration, as according to her, it is the best way to get through imagination.
Véronique Engels immerses her work in light and clarity. Through paint and materials, she is able to experiment with her work. She rubs, scrapes and scratches her medium until it comes alive. Through this punishment, she is able to celebrate painting.
A fiery artist, Engels devotes herself to other techniques like earth, ceramic or enamel sculpture. Her desire to share has led her to work with other creators from various fields like contemporary dance
choreographers, stylists, poets and has also rubbed shoulders with the digital world.
She has been displaying her work since 2003 in several galleries and biennials like Art Sacré de Lyon or Art Fair in Lille and has also done many solo exhibitions.
