Sophie Verbeek’s fragile strokes

I’m jealous of French contemporary calligrapher Sophie Verbeek.

“Most of my work is based on experimental research with the graphic line, space, colour and texture. What matters, is the overall sense the painting conveys, the sensitivity of the mark, the fragility of the stroke, the intensity of the texture. Not superficial beauty, but an authentic, mysterious, untouchable beauty, that one could call: the soul.”
