“Niels Ballemans creates art that emerges from his intimate perception of the world around him. Spectators of his work can revel in a feast of form and histrionic color, and, through Ballemans’ art, meet an artist who portrays the cultural imprints of society in a vulnerable, yet explicit manner”
Manus Groenen (Art critic)
I aim to create compositions that embody both narrative and abstract characteristics, that form a joint interplay. Encounters with people, their personal stories and fate, regularly form the basis for my artworks. The deconstructive process, where improvisation becomes its own dialogue and forms a key element in the work, is a fundamental influence as a method for creating my work.
