What seems to be an observation of reality is actually a composed image from personal impressions.
Vanheerswynghels is known for her impressive large scale charcoal drawings of constructed and lush landscapes that stem from a mental archive of images. Considering the process of drawing as an analysis of shapes, Vanheerswynghels often explores the same subjects, like trees, bushes, flowers, ponds, plants and birds. By using different layers of colour and a combination of coloured pastel, charcoal and highlights made by erasing parts of the drawing, the work becomes rich in depth and details. In her new series of drawings we see an enhanced adaption of techniques, creating a rich variety of patterns and contrasts.
