This large vertical 79 inch high and 39.5 inch wide and 4 inch deep installation artwork is a one-of-a-kind creation. The half inch white edge of the shadowbox make the frame around the piece, and it contains found and recycled materials such as cardboard, bottle caps, compact discs, cigarette lighters, and more to create the portrait image inside. A sheet of plexiglass encloses the top of the artwork and it is hand painted on top. It is hand signed and dated on the back. It is truly an artwork unlike any other.

Each artwork begins with Beyel’s comprehensive, intuitively organized image archive of many folders with photographs, prints, sketches and ideas for materials. Here, a first image is created which is subsequently changed day by day. The possibility and prerequisite for constant change is what she finds most attractive in art.

During the process, the expressive spirit that she wants to give each piece of artwork is central. Each work begins with meticulous, time-consuming hand-painted lines on Plexiglas. To make the unity play well together materials and the well-considered placement of them is crucial. This is a constant and intense changing process until that moment when everything perfectly and logically flows over into one another.

From her love of movement and change she sees working with different materials as a logical step. To play with light and shadow she makes use of layering and transparency combined with the different structures of materials. The background surface is a collage of carefully collected materials. Repetition and pattern are strong characteristic of her work. Beyel says: “There are recognizable patterns to be found in all forms of change’’.

Born in 1968, Mönchengladbach (Germany) she grew up in the south of Limburg (The Netherlands). She studied law and after a professional career in human resources, she followed her heart by becoming into an autodidact artist. In 2011 she was introduced at the TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair). This prominent platform lead to her international breakthrough and her work now frequents many other prestigious expositions and art fairs worldwide.
