About the event
In the heart of every artist there is a sincere desire to communicate and Christel expresses it through her new art project, “Stories about Travellers”. Every painting tells a story about the places Christel Van Hemelrijck travelled to, about the people she met and especially the ones who left a lasting impression. The island of Crete remains a major source of inspiration for Christel, along with her travel experiences. She lived in Crete during the nineties and she still spends a lot of time there. Many of her works from the “Stories” series have a connection with Paleochora ,a village in the south of the island . The need for connection and interaction with other people is always present. During the pandemic the encounters were rare due to travel restrictions. She started a new series: “Travellers”. The light in these paintings represents the promise of freedom, freedom to travel and meet people without any restrictions.
