  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    Anthracology is a part of archaeology based on the analysis and identification of charcoal from the anatomy of the wood, which is perfectly preserved after charring.
    Charcoal can come from archaeological sites or sediments, the study can give indications on the type of forests that existed before and on human activities.
    After Mireille Robbe's work on "Relique Carbonisée", she wondered what charcoal looked like under a microscope.

    Charcoal and pencil on burnt paper, glued on aluminium (hanging system).

Mireille Robbe

Belgium Born in: 1962

Mireille Robbe's work is a research on herself through her suitcase in the painting studio of Maurice Van Saene in Saint Luc - Brussels, reading, intuition, ...

In 2012, one of her works from the VITRIOL series sent her on the path of hidden symbols, which led her to Alchemy (and CG Jung) or, quite simply, to the philosophy of nature, of the universe.
An inexhaustible source of information and inspiration.

She integrates this symbolism and this philosophy only in her mode of reflection and not in the first visual layer of her works.

You will see that all of its concepts are related, even though they look different. This visual difference is partly explained by the fact that the chosen medium depends on the concept and not vice versa.

The common thread of her work is to show us the ingenuity of nature, to make us think about details that escape us because of their so-called obviousness.
