Veronique Van Der Esch is a specialist in animation drawing, particularly back grounds. She is skilled at setting the mood and understanding a fleeting moment. She has always painted in oils which is usually a still lengthy medium, but with a dancing light and the movement of her hand the spirit of these paintings lively and immediate. Even with an execution that is posed and deliberate, there is the sense of being in a precise moment in a Parisian café, a moment that can tell a whole story. Tom Byrne showed me her sketch books a while ago and there is an extraordinary photo journalistic quality to her work, rather than it being people in action that recount an event, it is objects in action that say what’s going on. If I were visiting Paris, and I wanted souvenir of the quintessential Parisian experience, one of these oil paintings would bring me back to a sunny Parisian café terrace, where ever I was in the world. You can see her work at Gallery DDG on the Ile Saint Louis.
