|Margriet Livain||Biography: My art wants most of all to be felt. For me, good art connects with the beholder in a way that cannot be directly expressed with words, but is instead experienced on an emotional level. Through this connection, a path to further reflection, meditation, and perhaps even healing of the spirit is opened.
Energy and balance play important roles in my art. I am fascinated with the tension between seemingly opposing forces. Can we find a balance between the opposite energies within and around us - male and female, reality and dream, physical and spiritual? How do we handle these forces without gravitating towards extremes? I do not presume to present the right answers to these questions. My paintings are simply characters and places I encounter on my quest for a deeper truth.
