Anouk van Zwieten (1991) is a painter who considers the painting a "crime scene." Not literally, but as a place where traces come together, serving as a gathering point for encounters, collisions, and interventions. What she experiences in everyday life forms the basis of her work. These can be direct events or personal circumstances, as well as societal changes or ideas that she reads about that influence her.

Van Zwieten explores the tension between figuration and abstraction by transforming the things she observes around her into abstract forms through a series of manipulations. Beneath each layer lies another image, another painting. This is where the connection to the subconscious resides, which is invisible but present.
