“I was subconsciously gathering up all that information being passed down to me. The moon calendar, what to plant when, how to prepare the earth,” says street artist/fine artist Adelle Renault about her formative years in the early 1990s planting gardens with her mother in the Belgian Ardennes.
“Even though I lived most of my adult life in large cities,” she says, “you can take the girl out of the garden but you can’t take the garden out of the girl.”
So this is how we arrive at her newest paintings that may appear as photography. The selection of canvasses comprising “Plantasia” will be on display tonight at at Galerie Quai 4 in Belgium, with a particular focus on birds of paradise.
“Of course nature – flowers, trees, landscapes – is the most common of subject, alongside portraiture, in painting,” Adele says. “But I hope that my microscope approach can still bring something new to the table.”
