I’M Tessa Smits, a Dutch artist working in Spanish Andalusia. The paintings that I make are often about pure feelings & desires, that which touches and drives us inside. Abstract Art is a powerful instrument in this, poetry almost. Not filled in or limited by existing frameworks, but emotions and energy in its purest form. So that you are free to feel what a painting activates in you.
The dot technique that I use ensures that the painting is made with a lot of love & attention; I place these drops of paint one by one in a meditative rhythm on the canvas. In addition, I often work with geometric designs, these lines, shapes and movements can also be found everywhere in nature and are stored in our DNA. As a result, looking at these paintings evokes a blissful feeling of coming home, joy and peace in many people.
