BIOGRAPHY MARGOT SUZANNE ABBRING
Margot Suzanne Abbring was born in the Netherlands in 1962. She lived in several countries in Europe over the years and has settled down in Spain. During her school period she developed a great interest in drawing, painting, colors and forms and has ever done so since. Though originally dedicating herself to impressionistic oil painting, she has made a radical change years ago to acrylics in an abstract style. Her paintings are colorful, original and full of emotion.
"I made the switch from impressionistic painting to abstract as I felt unsatisfied with the results lots of times. Abstract painting gives me more room for expression.
My inspiration comes from stimulation around me, colors, pictures, magazines, movies, fashion, shapes and even smells. I never sketch. I start working directly with the canvas which I prefer to be big and three-dimensional. I work mainly with acrylics and spatula but I like to experiment as well. Mixing different styles and techniques. My series on Architecture consist of black ink and acrylics...and are a combination of figurative and abstract. My Mixed Media Windows paintings are a mixture of transfers of photographs and acrylic painting and varnish. Past and present.....I love to mix the "stillness" of the B&W photo's with the vivid colours of paint.
