Dance Macabre stoelt kunsthistorisch op de laatste oordelen en afbeeldingen van dance macabre uit de Middeleeuwse kunst .Inhoud is belangrijker dan de realistische maat van de figuren op de afbeeldingen. Inspiratie uit de verhalende stijl van Breughel, jeroen Bosch en Neo Rauch. Ron Mueck, digital Teamlab, dj Armin van buuren (met toestemming om zijn afbeelding voor tentoonstellingen te gebruiken), bodyworld, wetenschappelijke foto,s van tranen van vreugde en verdriet. Mantel van Thor. Toegevoegde symbolen van vergankelijkheid vlinders, zeepbellen, rode anemonen. Rood en blauw geven leven en dood aan. Het is de bedoeling om het schilderij ondanks het zware thema een zekere luchtigheid te geven. Het leven is om van te genieten maar ook afzien, schuld en boete . Wij hebben de social plicht om vriendelijkheid uit te dragen en verantwoordelijkheid voor elkaar te nemen. Mijn werk is altijd maatschappelijk geengageerd. Vanuit mijn vrouwelijke visie geef ik commentaar op mistoestanden in de maatschappij
Statement “My work is a personal reaction to social issues." She sees herself as a visual columnist. Her sense and purpose in life are her paintings. She uses them to make people more open minded about the social and philosophical issues, to see if they agree or not. Beauty and traditional painting can attract and give more willingness to at least try to understand. She uses color, composition, materials, icons to reach her goal. She wants people to understand, we need a world with high moral standards and to show compassion! Learn from history. She is often indignant about what is happening in society. . Yvonne Welman Biography After her education at the academy of arts Tilburg ( NL). She worked as a teacher in arts and art history. To improve her qualities as a painter she took lessons in 16e and 17e centuries oil painting techniques. The artist works with open acrylics in a layering technique. She often integrates textile fabrics and other materials from her personal history. Her work has to be realistic, because she creates multifaceted and engaging paintings, that tell visual stories about her experiences and ideas. The stories cover gender equality, social issues, art history and personal issues. She does explore the Zeitgeist from a female view. Serendipity, time and technique each play their part during the process of creating the paintings. It takes a lot of time to create her work which makes it possible to add a new idea. This stands in strong contrast with all the superficial images that we are surrounded with most of the day. She creates a more complex strip story from all the images we see every day. Inspiration from artists like Breughel, Jeroen Bosch, Georgia O' Keefe, Camille Claudel, Neo Rauch, Lita Cabellut She is a member of the artists societies NABK and BOK . Waddinxveense KunstKring , Krimpener Kunstwaard all in the Netherlands, Manhattans art International on line Gallery. U.S.A., Kun:st International Stuttgart Germany She received awards in France, Swiss, Germany, U.S.A. and the Netherlands
