Now life seems to turn around the olives: the nets are placed under the trees and olive presses are opening their doors. All artists working on this island will be inspired by the olive trees. Like Chantalle van Eijk who was inspired by the silver-green colour of the tree and the beautiful play of lines displayed in the olive wood: The roots.
Material: pastel pencil with Indian ink on water color paper, sizes: 24 cm by 31 cm, prize: 125 euro.
Chantalle van Eijk (born 1974) finished her study as artist in 1998, then she made long travels and got her inspiration from the faraway countries. In 2003 she fell in love with the Greek island of Lesvos where she stayed and since then lived and worked. The structures, colours and basic forms in the landscape and the sea are her main inspiration.
