about this work

Over the past few years, Nel Aerts has fully developed her own visual language, and created a rich universe of grotesque and cartoonish figures that represent all kinds of human emotions and situations.

Dames van Plezier (Ladies of Pleasure) was created as a portfolio of six silkscreens on hand-painted paper, each depicting another female character.

about Nel Aerts

Nel Aerts moves in a freely, intuitive way between different media as painting, drawing, collage, performance and sculpture. Since a few years she focuses more often on the portrait-genre, which she visualises on paper or on wooden panels, with careful attention to the different qualities of each material. As such, she is creating a large collection (family almost) of posing subjects caught between abstract patterns and hard-edged figuration. The figures she portraits refer to both popular culture and her direct, everyday surroundings.

The self-portraits are tragicomic in the sense of the contrasts they evoke. Alternately they are desperate or funny, extra- or introverted, thought- or playful carved from wood or originated as a collage, but they are always introspective and self-relativistic.
