"Very beautiful are the wild landscapes of the Icelandic artist Jóhannes Sveinsson Kjarval (1885 - 1972),
whose works are shown for the very first time in our country. Equally beautiful are the paintings (4 Zones
and 6 watercolours) of Cathérine Claeyé. Her landscapes mainly come into existence in her head. With
only a few paint strokes she conjures up a whole world." Koen Van Boxem, De Tijd, 03 July 2018

Haukijärvi, 2015, watercolour, 15 x 21 cm

"Inspired by Bernd Lohaus's 'Blumen' (watercolours) we realized that there is an admiration for the
medium of aquarel amongst a number of H.I.S.K. artists. Yet, it is rarely considered a contemporary
medium in its own right and rarely exhibited." Sarah Smolders and Lisa Wilkens

"The paintings (a selection of 21 Zones) of Cathérine Claeyé move always on the cutting edge;
on the edge of everything and nothing, the seemingly silly and the sublime. In her landscapes she
knows how very little resources, sometimes just a few, sparse keys or brushstrokes, can reveal a very
different spatial experience. As a result she creates a great tension between the material components
of the painting and the virtual space of the image, between the real and the imaginary, the literal and
the possible. That gives her images a great evocative power and a particular vulnerability, a childlike
playfulness and an existential tension. Maybe we could call this tension between something and
nothing, concrete materiality in relation to that sparkling, fragile, fleeting beauty, erotic." Frank Maes,
Emergent Gallery, Veurne, (B.)

"Cathérine Claeyé constantly scrapes on her landscapes, ‘Zones’ as interior portraits. With sparse oil
she paints the liberty of emptiness. The emptiness of what we do not know (yet) requires time from the
spectator, though he slowly gets sucked into the scenic landscapes." Eliane Van Den Ende, H art
Magazine, 18 May 2017

"Cathérine Claeyé is seeking out the erotic, the sensual presence in the landscape. A nostalgia for a
cosmic experience." Eric De Smet, Galerie El, Welle, (B.)
