Esther Cornelis is an artist from Bruges, Belgium. By portraying the people surrounding her daily life, she emphasises the beauty in the mundane. The figures in her paintings often show the roughness of life, the beauty in the ugly and the dark. One could say this is a typical West-Flemish way of being. Her style is characterised by a distinctive communication between different colours allowing her to capture a moment in time, by melting several movements into one frame.
