Birde Vanheerswynghels

Year and place of birth: 1986, Roeselare (Belgium), Roeselare (Belgium) Location: Brussels (Belgium)

In her studio in Brussels, Birde Vanheerswynghels constructs monumental charcoal drawings of sumptuous landscapes. In addition, she often embroiders onto previous work in order to gradually unfold new compositions. During this process, she makes use of Polaroids and photos taken with her mobile phone. This is because photography allows her to see more clearly what is missing from her drawings, or rather, what can be changed. The artist recently utilised the resulting archive of Polaroids and detailed images to create new work.
