About Linda Coppens

 Abstract painter Linda Coppens enjoying the sun in her garden in Spain

   “My ultimate goal is to bring about breathing life onto the surface of the painting with gesture, mark making and energy and by doing that, provide food for the mind and soul of the viewer."

I am a Belgian contemporary abstract painter.
From an early age I was fascinated by drawing and painting but could not pursue an art education at that time, instead I earned a Master in Psychology. But my interest in art remained and about twenty years later I pursued an art education at the Art Academy in Liedekerke, Belgium. In 2020, I moved to Torrevieja, Spain, where I currently reside.

In my colorful paintings I mobilize color, texture and gestural mark making as a structure for the creation of abstract compositions to evoke a sense of emotional balance in the viewer.

My process

Using a mix of mediums that includes acrylic paint, oil and cold wax, I layer my mediums using non-traditional tools and techniques. My inspirations include the unexpected feelings and thoughts generated by poetry; the weather worn surfaces of derelict urban buildings; and the vibrant and bountiful visual world of nature.
In order to evoke the various realms of human experience that inspire me, I surrender to process, allowing my paintings to manifest slowly according to their own rhythm and internal logic rather than planning my compositions in advance. Time is also an essential element in my work, as the impasto layers of paint can be read as records of the history of their own making.
