The VenoArt National Loving Day Auction

Artist: Francien Krieg Statement: Over the last few years Francien has created a series of paintings, which stylistically dovetail into its overall work. This inter- esting new series came about by the birth of her long-desired second child, Benjamin. Strong emotion is evident in all these paintings, which characterise both herself and her family. The concept of the young family is artfully explored in the light of this introspection. She says about this series: “The growth of a child is profoundly beautiful, but also something sad for me, slightly melancholic, it adds up to what is fleeting.” The series of family portraits give a new and different impetus to Francien’s oeuvre. It matches the essential element of her work: she keeps in touch with her personal and primary creative urge, in which the human body is central, and im- permanence is the core. Moreover, she demonstrates the growing development of her talent. The essence of all her work involves the creation of an interaction between the viewer and the painting, the hallmark of fine art.
