About

I am driven by the need for a language that helps to feel and articulate the ‘space in between everything’. A curiosity towards the intangible layers of life has been an indispensable part of my world. I have an interest in the ‘searching’man in various forms. The act of searching is rooted in the content of what I make and it also forms the base of the way I make it. The process of creating an image is accompanied by a wordless, inner dialogue and can be seen as intuitive work. It is about being a human and the mystical dimension of experiencing life. At the same time the ‘outer’ world is an important recourse for themes and topics in which this realm is deeply felt. Stages of transition like coming of age phases and for example the process of dying and birth can be found in my work as well as moments of timelessness. The non-concrete is an important part of my practice. As it creates space for the adventure of ‘not knowing’ and gives the worlds inside these images room for some movement and interpretation. There is a focus on the idea of a collective awareness and corresponding primal images in context to my own universe of archetypes and visual landmarks.

Fleur Carlier got her Bachelor  in Fine Art and Education in 2014 at De Breitner Academie in Amsterdam. After some years of teaching Art, while developing her visual work, she is at the moment mainly focussing on her artistic practice.
