Franceline Pompe

Franceline Pompe (Luxembourg, 1963) lives and works in the Netherlands. For her paintings she uses mainly natural canvas and acrylic paint, sometimes black (or rarely, white) cloth is tightly stitched onto the canvas to enhance the outline of a figure.

The subject of her art is most often one or several persons, without ever becoming a portrait. In fact, one seldom sees the face but it is through certain gestures or poses that these persons are ‘portrayed’. Sometimes her paintings show no one at all, but traces of human presence, either through objects or in a landscape.
