Joop de Chène (b 1950) lives and works in Belgium as an independent artist. She exhibits regularly at home and abroad and also offer art classes and workshops.
The work of Joop can be described as lyrical abstraction. Joop processes materials such as fabrics and patterns in the many layers within her paintings. Sometimes these visible, sometimes they are not but always with good reason
Joop goes into her work looking for balance and space, beauty and stillness.Her paintings radiate a remarkable harmony and tranquility and are characterised by the use of warm earth tones.
