capturing traces of time
to be touched in different ways

Let me introduce myself.  My name is Janien and I’m a mixed media artist, living in Antwerp (Belgium).

Making collages, bringing different pieces together in a new balance is what I love. I work with paper and fabric that show traces of time. 

I hope that the artwork will attract you to touch it and that you are touched by it.

"JANIEN PRUMMEL frames in soft fragments and strips of bygone time that were once somehow entrusted to paper, fabrics, in handwriting, in embroidery, in creases, in tears. They are reveries.
Attempts that want to be touched. Wanting to be stroked by your eyes, cherished in your presence, in your room? On your wall? Will you come and see?"
A few photo's to get a closer look to the bookcover collages. I especially love old books that have a fabric cover.  The colours and materials are fragile and you feel the time and history in them. There is something very satisfying about tearing a book apart and discover the binding. Then the materials, the texture, the colours and shapes find their own way in a composition.

Are you looking for a personal gift? In my online store you will find original art, postcards and prints.

Here you get an impression how the works can look framed, on a wall and maybe in your home!
