This is a monograph on the work of the only Belgian painter whose work was displayed at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. Her specific, poetic, oeuvre builds a bridge between abstract art and realism and is characterised by her use of warm colours; she calls herself an 'unrealistic realistic painter'. This book, in which light and simplicity form the key elements, is a testament to the evolution of her work over the past ten years. With an essay by Frans Boenders, images by top photographer Luc Schrobiltgen and poems by Peter Holvoet-Hanssen and Jean-Claude Vandeplas.
Lieve Dejonghe (b.1961) has already held solo exhibitions in Belgium, The Netherlands, France and China. Her work is permanently exhibited in galleries and museums in Japan, China, South Korea and numerous European countries. She lived in Shenyang (China) for 2 years.
