It's the fifth time this event is organized. Art Event is an initiative of the  Art Event  Ondernemersfonds Emmen Centrum foundation with Gerald Janse as the organisor of this event assisted by artist Ingo Leth. A day of experiencing art; a visit to Emmen center is surely worth your while.

The paintings flow with the interior of the stores as if they've always been part of the interior. The pillars are excellent for hanging the smaller painting " women", while the beige wall complements the painting " Winter scape". There was no extra decor needed for the " swans in the reed"  in the store window except for the two reed bundles placed besides the paintings. Reeds and feathers can also be seen as material on the paintings. Graceful in simplicity is in this case the power of grace.

Above you can see the symbolic loop from start to finish. It goes from the screen to the start sign above it, following the finish sign at the far end. Both signs are framed in an organically formed picture frame to accentuate the contrast.

The interaction between the colors in the clothing and shoes with the paintings emphasize each other.
The sneakerson the right with the finish sign in between are painted in the colors and style of the two exhibited paintings.

New Exhibition

September 10th to 24th  I'm exhibiting a few of my paintings during Art-Event Emmen. The exhibition will be held in a commercial space in the center of Emmen. More information on the exact location will follow shortly.

For more on Art-Event:

Mission accomplished!!! The Scheper Hospital is filled with new paintings.  You can see my newest work in the central hall of the Scheper Hospital Emmen.  The hospital hall is open from Monday to Sunday 7:00 until 20:30.

Below a preview in pictures and the invitation text. The online gallery is also updated with new paintings. 


From March 14th to May 16th Geneviève Gougon exhibits her acrylic paintings in the central hall and auditorium of the Scheper Ziekenhuis Emmen.

Time seems to go by much faster. Developments in an ever changing world follow each other rapidly. Our senses, over stimulated by our current society. More hectic, faster, harsher, busyer and more of everything. With her work Geneviève Gougon wants to challenge a different sense namely our inner eyes, our intuitive side.

Everything is made of energy. Thus are any of her paintings a translation of energetic experiences. Experiences which she portrays in an abstract or figurative manner with vibrant colours.
The principal being harmony, balance.

Geneviève Gougon is born in 1975 on Curaçao and has moved to Holland when she was ten years old. Creating has always been something she wanted to do. Making something out of nothing. During her studies Art and Design  (spacial presentation) and subsequently the studies for her teaching degree in visual arts education, both finished at the Noordelijke Hogeschool Leeuwarden, she was educated in various processes of creation in different disciplines of arts and applied arts.

In this exhibition she wants to take the viewer along to a journey closer to him/herself, closer to everything by experiencing, by letting go.
