Christien Aalberts



Acrylic on paper

Statement: For a series I am making on the subject Contact, I made this painting, a close-up of a woman praying near the Wailing Wall in Israel. Her head is bowed, her hand is spread out on the Wall. The intimacy of this picture signifies to me the personal side of praying on the one hand, and the holiness of our Lord on the other hand.


Bio: I was born in 1974, living in the Netherlands as an independent artist for five years now. I attended the Gooise Academy of Arts for two and one-half years, and participated in a group exhibition in the Singer Museum in Laren. My inspiration comes from my faith, nature and people. It is an ongoing search for me how to combine my faith and my art in my paintings.
