” I always try to capture the ephemeral: that which lies beyond words or reason. It just comes naturally. Whether I am traveling the world or walking around my own garden. Every color, every light stroke or contrast that touches my heart I translate into my work.”
The paintings of Léonce Lemmens 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 creates personal and timeless pieces that tell a story of their own.
During her study at the Art Academy she focussed on fashion and textiles. A love that never truly passed away during her long, meandering career. Work experiences in corporate organizations and healthcare made her realize how important art and textiles can be in an interior. They make up the language of a room and can help the people in it feel comfortable, spirited or calm.
Art can make or break a room.
In the project ‘Art on Textiles’ Léonce Lemmens complements some of her paintings with home textiles that complete and emphasize each room personality.
