Franceline Pompe (Luxembourg, 1963) lives and works in the Netherlands. For her paintings

   she uses mainly natural canvas and acrylic paint, sometimes black (or rarely, white) cloth is tightly

   stitched onto the canvas to enhance the outline of a figure. The subject of her art is most often one

   or several persons, without ever becoming a portrait. In fact, one seldom sees the face but it is

   through certain gestures or poses that these persons are 'portrayed'. Sometimes her paintings show

   no one at all, but traces of human presence, either through objects or in a landscape.
