Christiane Corcelle-Lippeveld and Sophia Mone
My work is based on a perpetual passion for giving life through composition. As a former landscape designer, I have always been fascinated with colors and shapes and how they interact.
Printmaking has become my primary means of artistic expression. I like the infinity of all the layers that can be achieved, the richness of the color and the sophistication of the lines that can be rendered through this complex medium.
My inspiration comes from found objects and other elements, and deals with personal observations and experiences acquired from visiting and living in different countries.
In my prints, I juxtapose materials, images, shapes, and colors through a combination of different techniques. The elements blend, almost threatening each other, creating a prototype that is rich, edgy and commanding all at once.
The resulting images portray a characteristic and contemporary style that invites individual responses and interpretation. Regardless of the approach, art makes me feel happy and alive.
“Art does not reproduce the visible, it renders visible” — Klee

My art revolves around an abstract figure and the waves of energy that compose, affect, and complete it as a unique being. The figure’s interactions with itself and others elicit images that fascinate me. I like using layers of colors and shapes in my art to promote a sense of mystery and intrigue. Abstracting these images is a challenge. It keeps my art moving in a never-ending spiral, a symbol I use frequently to emulate a sense of adventure. I love exploring new lines, shapes and colors and how they relate to my imagery. They enable me to challenge the boundaries of tradition and to think outside of the box in my creative process.”
