Threads of Nature
The work is like traveling through layers. Revealing interconnected spaces. It’s like following a line: pulling a single thread from a pattern of life. The paintings ‘Threads of Nature’ show abstracted reflections on the essence of nature. Van Ingen’s practice is essentially about the non-material, or going beyond the material and into visual space. Exploring another reality, to which we gain access through contemplation and prayer. She seeks to capture the meaningful dialogue between these internal and external realities, metaphorically portrayed through images taken from nature.
