Rezi van Lankveld (1973, Almelo,NL, lives and works in Amsterdam) is known for her small-scale paintings. She harnesses the essential character of paint to create intuitive, complex pictures. Van Lankveld allows paint to flow onto the canvas, making way for unpredicted images. She takes advantage of something sufficiently evocative, a line or a shape, to contribute to the process of building an image; turning that which is perceived into that which is constructed.
