Carry van Delft works emphasize the aesthetic of a spiritual journey that is at once historically embedded and intensely intimate and personal. They awaken our emotional memory, and empower us to see more than the canvas surface. Her work encourages us to believe that a painting should not end on the canvas; it should encourage viewers to create worlds of their own. The work of Delft allows us to do just that. Passionately committed to exploring the inherent properties, color and power of paint, Delft’s ardor for life is evident in each of her paintings. As an experimental and dynamic artist, Delft effortlessly convinces us that she has not only perfected her craft, but that she also has an impeccable instinct for the emotionally evocative power of color, movement, texture and shape. Her works evoke a sense of abundance; swirling arabesques of color, in brilliant and vivid shades of blue, yellow and green, are rich, luxurious, sensuous, fluid and overflowing.
Music plays a key role in both the composition and conclusion of Delft’s work. Acting as part of the creative process—in that it takes the artist into a trance, opening her creative channels, thus making Delft ready to conceive the piece. The construction of her works, from composition, to the laying down of shapes, colors, and textures, transport us to another dimension; each work tells a story based on the artist’s search for the “sound of color”. It is here, basking in the light of her forms that our own thoughts and ideas come into play. In L Ombre des Arbres, and Je Regardais, Delft refines her own unique methodology of painting into a innovative and internationally acclaimed art form.
