Chantal Spit (1971)

Her working method is never based on a plan. She uses her own, always changing, realm of (sensory) experience and reference. To quote Chantal: ‘I am all about letting the unknown in, using whatever comes my way during the day therefore being more creative’.

She employs an illusion of light: clear light in contrast to deep shadows, or a hint of light emanating from an unknown source. Environments are often undetermined, a sense of time only suggested by a setting sun or the shadow thrown by a lamp. The subjects of her paintings are often lost in their own world.
