Vivi Herreboudt is a painter of landscapes. But not so much the element "nature" is present, but the meditative dimension of nature. She has expressed the silence and the harmony in the simple lines of her beach landscapes. Few forms break through the few horizontal lines with which she shapes her vast world without sound.
The environment gets more shape in her "Garden Corners" series. We discover the places full of peace that are hidden in our daily living environment. Much more than in her beach works we see here the nature modeled by man. The tranquility is complemented by the element of conviviality.
The “A Comforting Loneliness” exhibition gives an overview of het new work made in 2019. Some older works are added to underline the right atmosphere. These paintings tell about loneliness, but a loneliness that carries a contemplative peace. Not the intolerance of being alone, but the resignation to loneliness is poetically outlined here.
In the silence of being alone one discovers oneself.
