About the work The work is often exuberant, sometimes modest aim is to create a mysterious Plays. Where much remains for the viewer to fill in doing becomes very light of light and dark, line and form and composition and rhythm. Often there is much momentum in the work. Spaces are filled with energy, color, infinity moving Thus the concrete transformed into an abstraction In it, the spectators themselves are very own way Comments. This work demonstrates a great creative urge and painterly expressiveness. (Groninger Museum) Here are only merely shapes and lines and surfaces used with mysterious characters are connected. (Die Presse Quelle 2009) Influences. The work of the German Expressionists, Cobra and the contemporary South Dutch painters of the Tilburg School. Awards. Different prices in the province of Gelderland Nominated for an appearance in "The Plantation" VPRO One of the first ten newspaper De Gelderlander Doetinchem Second "The country" Deventer in 2008. She creates large oil abstract paintings on canvas with figurative elements that are assembled to form the composition. Knip is fascinated with the use of various materials. Not just the paint itself, but also the skin of the canvas and the interaction between the two. She is intriged by the flexibility of the paint and how the different layers tune to each other. Many things are happening on the canvas. The paint is worked over the entire canvas. The composition is shaped and highlighted sometimes with the use of very capricious traces of paint. By experimenting, figurative elements come to the foreground and are then elaborated on. Her work engages the viewer by it´s variety and strong artistic voice. Sometimes it is subdued, austere, and even mystical, but then it soars, bursting with exuberant colour.
