Merel is a Belgian artist who lives and works in the centre of Antwerp since 1980 and devotes herself entirely to the practice and distribution of her art.
Extract from Merel's book, Life is an Art, Art is my Life.
I recently had the pleasure of attending one of Merel's art exhibitions. An opening reception for Life is an art, art is my life, at Leonhard's Gallery, here in Antwerp.
My lovely Belgian friend, Ruth, had introduced me to Merel's art and invited me along to the opening.
There we were, it was almost time to leave, and I was looking through Merel's exquisite hardcover coffee-table book while Ruth and Merel chatted. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the page photographed below.
There was some surprise, much laughter, and conversations about how it happened. Anyway, I really admire her work ...love it, wouldn't mind some on my wall. One day, when I'm working again, I'll go buy a copy of her book.
As always, Ruth, thank you for another lovely adventure.
