"Karine van de Velde makes us perceive, in the first movements of the dunes that she offers us, the different approach of the real, she enters into a world of light, matter and colors, here each impression, each perception can be the source of an inspiration where formal reality is freed from all constraints, including that of the necessary advance towards the horizon, without limit of futile borders.The works of Karine van de Velde are free from the borders of the formal because they make us penetrate another dimension of space, so let us feel that it is in the heart of the dunes a musicality of sunsets, full moons and first rays blazing the horizon. music, of these landscapes, of those colors of distant times, of what was water and which has become sand that Karine van de Velde draws for our greatest happiness this pictorial inspiration From the shade to the light, of this time suspended from the timeless gait, of this new path that reconstructs the look, it admirably translates this color made of tenderness, of impalpable music, it teaches us that in the desert the music is also silence.
