LÉONCE LEMMENS | Dutch visual artist
(b.1955 Maastricht – The Netherlands)
Léonce Lemmens creates contemporary modern paintings that are at once perfectionist and deeply feminine in capturing the ephemeral, that which lies beyond words, beyond reason. The paintings have an abstract expressionist aesthetic, consisting of endless layers of build-up colors and mixed textures. Working with acrylics, oil, collages and mixed media on canvas, she paints personal and timeless pieces that tell a story of their own.
During her study at the Art Academy she focussed on fashion and textiles, but she took a different path and worked in corporate organizations and healthcare. The love for painting never passed away and in 2014 she picked up painting.
Léonce Lemmens currently lives at the Dutch countryside, after several years staying alternately in the Caribbean and The Netherlands.
