Voet van Notre Dame is Afrikaans for: At the steps of Notre Dame.

Following footage of the Notre Dame on the news during the funerals after the 2015 shooting Adéle made another pilgrimage to Notre Dame. After sitting in front of the Notre Dame in December of 2015, she went home and painted the lights of the city from her visit and the sirens from the news on the facade.

Painting the Notre Dame, she follows in the footsteps of the Impressionist Claude Monet paintings of the Notre Dame at different times in the day in order to capture the changing light reflecting of the church. This piece of Adéle incorporates the lights of the city, the tourists and the sirens of different first responders.

Adéle has once again absorbed a moment in time and mixed with art history to bring us a piece that can pierce the soul as well as enrich the soul.
