Pintura Artistica Gemma Leys
Gemma Leys is a Dutch artist living in Mallorca. I designed a invitation, poster, bookmarks, business cards and folder for her annual exhibition. We worked together on the project. She was as bright and enthousiastic to be with as her paintings are to look at. It was a very pleasant collaboration which will hopefully get a sequel.
Experimenting initially with several different techniques, she focussed particularly on the use of eggtempera, first with water, and finally with oil and pigments. Her work gradually became more abstract, and her colours attained an extraordinary translucence. Her paintings sometimes contain surprising symbols and forms. In other paintings she uses calligraphy to inscribe poems by Pablo Neruda.
