Meike van Riel about her painting process: "Departuring from my fascination for simplicity, I immerse myself into a dialogue with the canvas. I consider it an obligation to translate my inspiration to art. Curiosity, skill and perseverance are all indispensible in my process of creation. Exploring the theme is a process in which adoptions of techniques and materials flow in conjunction. With every work of art I proceed forward; my work keeps progressing."
