GABY VAN EMMERICH


 

Artist Statement

 

"My main topic is the color. At first impulsively, then deliberately, I apply colors on the canvas and this creates color spaces. Coincidences are welcome, forced, directed and dissolved. The moment in which chaos emerges out of order is magical. Then there is something that goes beyond the color. I am always looking for this moment.” Gaby van Emmerich, November 2019
