Hilde Goossens

°1978, Sint-Niklaas, BE
Works and resides in Sint-Maria-Oudenhove, Belgium

Hilde Goossens started an art education in 1995 in Sint-Lucas Ghent, Belgium, and graduated in 1997 with the highest honours.

Now based in the Flemish Ardennes in Sint-Maria-Oudenhove, Belgium, her artistic expression takes the form of acrylic paintings on paper, inspired by her daily life, contemplative walks, and unforgettable travels, often captured through the lens of her smartphone. These acrylic paintings on paper serve as the foundation for larger canvases. Her style is characterized by its power of suggestion, where she skillfully strips away extraneous details, leaving only the essence of her subjects. In a weekly post, she weaves together her writings from her personal diary with these frozen memories, artfully rendered in silenced hues.

She had solo exhibitions in Zebrastraat, Ghent, Belgium, the public Library in Zottegem, Belgium and in Cultural Center De Meent in Alsemberg, Belgium. She was included in group exhibitions in PMMK, Ostend, Belgium (now Muzee) and Textielmuseum Ghent, Belgium. Her work is part of the private collection Merode in Ronse, Belgium.
