about this work

Charline Tyberghein likes to play with optical illusions in her work. Certain symbols keep recurring, and the wine glass is one of her most recognisable motifs.
In collaboration with artlead, Tyberghein made an exclusive, hand-tufted carpet based on her painting Trickle. Nine wine glasses together form a pyramid. In this carpet, the glasses optically blend together with a delightfully soft checkerboard pattern.

about Charline Tyberghein

Charline Tyberghein’s paintings are composed of abstract geometric patterns, optical illusions and small symbols. Her work balances comedy and tragedy. The beautiful colours, playful shapes, and optical illusions give a cheerful impression. However, these find a counterbalance in the sometimes dark undertones of the symbols she paints, such as a noose, or a weeping candle.

It may be surprising in these times of digital technology that Tyberghein does not digitally design her optical illusions before she starts painting. The artist is very decided about this: she does not work with computers. It is important to her that everything is created manually. Thus, for her, each painting is an exercise in how a pattern behaves during her working process. Because of this, she also does not know what a painting will look like until it is finished.
