The artist paints mainly women and follows a harmonic and constructively perfect pattern. The figure in itself is dominating but the artist knows how to put it the right surroundings where nature and cosmos play a symbolic part. With a set of straight lines, Hildegarde builds a mysterious haze of inner feelings on the canvas in a simple but penetrative way. She does not call for hallucinating images bet lets herself go with sensitivity guided by an unfailing intuition. Even when the figures, at first sight, seem distant they point to a certain duality and yet her usage of colors express an honest alliance between the data and the deeper thoughts.
With an articulated preference for the figure and the nature of woman, Handsaeme went the self-teaching way in the plastic art form. The sensitive approach to this theme remains her source of inspiration which is utterly inexhaustible. A couple of years ago, she achieved a broad recognition of her artistic language when she obtained the third international prize for painting in Libramont.
Hildegarde’s abstract acrylic paintings present such an original form and content that it is difficult to classify her work or compare her style to other artists. Only extremely gifted artists succeed to be independent from the start and grow gradually to a recognizable style. This is utterly rare. Like a red thread, Hildegarde’s personality runs through her works which show us a very characteristic world. She seems to know always what she does and why and she leaves nothing to fate. Her work is as she envisioned it, and what she envisions she gets, in her own way, from the background into focus so one can say without looking at her signature that her personality is clearly there. Her work is very personal and shows that art per se has no boundaries, it is not subjected to strict laws, it’s unseizable and difficult to put into words.
Simply and honestly Hildegarde gives us the message of love and tenderness which should be shown to each individual. In a pictural equilibrated and harmonic way, she knows how to remind us of the glamorous intuition of a woman. Born in Kortrijk, Hildegarde lives and works in Terlanen, Belgium.
