Kantje 1 | Monique Leliefeld | Abstract Painting

Kantje is Dutch for Lace.


This is the left part of a series of three oval paintings by Monique Leliefeld. However, this work is also an excellent stand-alone piece. The effect created by the white paint over the brown reminds the artist of lace, and she has named the series lace. On the other hand, the series looks like the moon in different parts of its cycle to me. There are three layers in this seemingly uncomplicated piece.

The lace effect is in the foreground and the crescent moon in the middle ground. The background being the textured ochre colour, which looks more than fine red sand that occurs in iron-rich areas. This brown earthy tone and sand-like texture is the complete opposite from delicate lace or crescent moons in space. The more one looks at the painting. The greater the juxtaposition occurs between colour and association. What do you see?
