Maïté Vanpoucke is looking for a coming together between the different art disciplines. She captures this search in the relationship between her sculptures, furniture, ceramics, paintings, drawings and digital work. She creates a tension field of recognizable elements and texts combined with abstraction.
The text’s are a psychological compulsion and mark-making. She refers to her markings as ‘structured chaos’.
The structured lines were created by her chronic migraines. The obsessive placement and repetition of lines creat a calming effect for her.
She sees this as a way of communicating/writing. But this writing is not always done in a literal way, the layering of the texts and lines makes it not always readable/ recognizable. And this is exactly what she wants.
