Nature? Of course Nature! Nature has always been a source of inspiration for artists. For Anita, too, it is an inexhaustible source for her inspiration. Read more…
Feelings and characters
Feelings and characters, rendered minimalist.
Over and over, hand-built in different stages, waiting, creating compositions and finding balance, over and over again. A sculpture should be well shaped, because even if you put your most beautiful color on it, when the shape is bad, the beautiful color won’t help.
Feeling the materials, taking time for this. I I call it respecting the clay, because when I work too fast the clay wraps itself up, disagrees and spits out its anger in a thousand pieces in the oven.
Beautiful colors. Pixelism!
Beautiful colors of nature in all seasons. Early in the morning, the freezing temperatures hanging in the air as the sun rises. It gives a prism to colors in the sky, or the sun, which tries to break through the nebula. The many shades of green in spring and the splendour of blossoms, summer by the sea, autumn with all shades of reddish-brown. Winter, a residual rose buried in the snow. Her paintings are memories, which, like photographs, contain thousands of pixels, built up by squares of about 1 cm by 1 cm. Pixelism! Labor-intensive but at the same time soothing, and unique.
Brief History: Celis has been a fixture in Limburg and beyond for selling Volvo for 85 years!
It all started in 1936 in Sint Truiden with trucks to be quickly followed by the Volvo cars and this both in Sint Truiden and in Hasselt.
In 2021 it was decided to leave the business and with Marc Vanoverstraeten came a new investor. A new investor but with the same values as the Vandenboer and Celis families!
The same values of a family business but a new adjusted vision of the future!
