Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Hélène Terlien

"Hai, My name is Hélène Terlien.
I was born in 1960, Breda , The Netherlands.
Now living and working in Amsterdam.
Painting has become an all consuming passion to me, especially when working with oilpaints.
People and Animals are a source of inspiration from wich a fantasy, when taking shape on the canvas, starts leading its own live. And I , as an artist, am left to follow in its path. People,animals and objects function, alone or togheter to tell a story with room for different viewing points.
Take the name I give a painting just as a suggestion. I leave it up to the viewer to give his or her own interpretation with the symbolism and magical reality I depict. Thus leaving the possibility open to use your own imagination and maybe even enjoy a moment of recognition"
