Mariëtte Becu
My last series is called Ancestors, illustrating ancestors and their off-spring. Young individuals and the influence of family energies. My technique of Egg-tempera provides me with the tools to convey the strength and vulnerability a person can radiate. I experience that trough my sharp eye, empathetic character and craftwomanship as a painter, I can accurately illustrate and portray the human being. I can add a piece of essence to a ancient portrait tradition, looking past concepts such as status, power or fashion.
