Belgian-born painter Linda Coppens mobilizes color, texture and gestural mark making as a structure for the creation of abstract compositions the artist hopes will evoke a sense of emotional balance in the viewer. Using a mix of mediums that includes acrylic paint and cold wax, Coppens layers her mediums using non-traditional tools and techniques. Her inspirations include the unexpected feelings and thoughts generated by poetry; the weather worn surfaces of derelict urban buildings; and the vibrant and bountiful visual world of nature. In order to evoke the various realms of human experience that inspire her, Coppens surrenders to process, allowing her paintings to manifest slowly according to their own rhythm and internal logic rather than planning her compositions in advance. Time is also an essential element in her work, as the impasto layers of paint can be read as records of the history of their own making. Coppens has exhibited extensively in Belgium, US and Luxembourg.

1956 , Belgium

Linda Coppens is a Belgian artist whose colorful abstract paintings reflect her own quiet battle against the increasingly frenetic world we are living in. She mobilizes color, texture, and gestural mark-making as a structure for the creation of compositions that evoke a sense of emotional balance in the viewer. Fascinated by the human mind with all its complex mysteries and by the immense beauty of nature, the artist finds inspiration and process in life itself. A process-oriented painter, Coppens never has a plan or works from sketches. Instead, she simply starts painting and allows one mark, shape, or color to suggest the next color or gesture. Born in Aalst, she moved to Brussels, where she studied at the VUB, earning a Master in Psychology. Coppens remained interested in art and, after twenty years, decided to do it properly. She started formal training at the Art Academy in Liedekerke, where she obtained her drawing and painting certificate and discovered her passion for abstract art. Linda Coppens spends most of her time in Spain.
