... born in 1958, she lives and works in Belgium. Lights There are artists gifted with the genius of light. With a stroke of the brush, they are able to light up a canvas, making it incandescent. Bernadette TRIKI is one of these artists. She gives us deep insight into minute details, a seemly insignificant composition, and unveils its mystery. With grace and talent, the painter depicts the intimacy of a blossoming tree branch or an old book. The play of shade and light is marvellously executed, and the palette of colours, made up of browns and reds, is skilfully elegant.
