Museum Valkenburg presents an overview of the fascinating work of contemporary artist Ries Kleijnen (Wijchen 1945). Since she graduated from the Art Academy St. Joost in Breda, she has more than earned her spurs as a graphic artist. She makes color etchings, paintings and pastels and designs jewelry. She has participated in more than a hundred solo and group exhibitions and her work is regularly selected for international Print Biennales.
Her landscapes seem realistic at first sight, but they never are. Colors play an important role in her work and mainly have a symbolic meaning. In addition to her creative way of imagining, she uses a combination of graphic techniques. Her graphic work consists mainly of many-colour etchings and of color etchings in combination with other techniques.
