Meike van Riel about her painting process: 'From my fascination with simplicity, i enter into dialogue with the canvas. I experience it as a necessity to translate my inspiration into art. Curiosity, skill and perseverance are indispensable to me while painting. Researching the theme is a process, in which the techniques and use of materials move with it. With each work of art I take a next step: my work continues to develop.'
