Gabriella Cleuren

European Fine Artist- Painter



Artwork is like language, not only are the spoken words of importance, but also the intonation and

the unconscious body language. That is why it is not always advisable to explain the work.

For a viewer, it can mean another world, from his own background, and such understanding

must be possible; it is richness in abundance and diversity. © Gabriella Cleuren 2012

The artist worked almost in silence for 40 years, devoted to her art and ameliorating

her painting in significant pictures.
