Happy ever after sets the decoration for an imaginary, natural landscape. For this exhibition Brussels-based artist Birde Vanheerswynghels shows a large-scale, charcoal drawing. Vanheerswynghels finds inspiration in parks, greenhouses and museums of natural history - designed for the audience to understand and enjoy the variety and beauty of nature. An alphabet or a logical way of understanding nature. In the future more than 50 percent of the human population will live in cities, where nature is controlled by man and provides leisure-time for the citizens. What about a walk with your dog? A friendly football match? Or getting that tan on a sunny Sunday afternoon? Leaving us more alienated from nature than ever - can you hear the cars humming on the background? The drawings of Birde Vanheerswhyngels are not a plea for another way of living, they do not defend nor offend no-one or nothing, but capture nature’s beauty by the imaginary. These drawings are not a representation of an existing scene. Vanheerswhyngels starts from one single form that she keeps repeating; she draws from her memory and gestures are more important than composition. Her approach is intuitive. Romance may be dead, romanticism is not. Sometimes I’m happy.
