Galleria Tondinelli, Rome 2011
The sensible Danish painter is now started to artistic maturity after some aesthetic experiences, gained through the internalization of the theories learned directly in London, New York, Geneva, Florence, and, of course, in Copenhagen. Her style is introspective, but also inquiring of the outside world. Signals come from the two worlds to the heart, not only a feelings cradle, but true laboratory transformation of images in a dreamlike visions of life and subsequent phases of interplay between experience and expression to turn to define the true meaning of lived space.
In "Madonna and Child" space corresponds to a few centimeters between the two sides, so homogeneous as they were one. Lis Engel here reveals its iconographic traits, with soft, harmonic tones (which is dominated by pasteltones) and she even include the symbolic element of the dove in the foreground. She's not wrong when Engel defines his style "expressive, poetic, wonderful, which in itself contains dreamlike visions of figures, but also allegories and abstractions" of an ideal world that effectively live creating and realizing not living in the city of the Little Mermaid.
