“Art allows the expression of emotion in an abstract form” says the talented artist Naomi Van Rampelberg.
Art might be said to run in her veins. Born in 1983, her earliest memories are of making her own 'masterpieces' and being surrounded by the sculptures and paintings of her Kenyan artist mother, Chelenge, or the unique furniture creations of her Belgian Father, Marc; both enthusiastic collectors of the contemporary art of East Africa.
Graduating with a degree in Cultural Anthropology from Concordia University in Montreal her return to art was no surprise. When the wine bottles ran out, she painted any glass object she could lay her hands on. She developed her own meticulous style of intricate dot painting with each creation perhaps taking sixty hours to complete and of a patternation that suggests the duality of her African and European heredity.
From those auspicious beginnings her inspirational jewellery made from recycled glass fragments has led to sophisticated paper collages of complex and precise images constructed at the scale of the tiny. She credits music as her inspiration.
Her art is an impressive international product rooted in the soil of Africa. It is my great pleasure to host this young artist for her first solo exhibition.
