About the artwork of BIKKEL
By Drs. Vincent Botella
BIKKEL’s work comes straight from the heart. It is a direct, artistic reaction to things in her unique, colorful, and sometimes tragic personal life that touch her deeply. Especially the fate of women, issues touching upon her island of birth, Curaçao, and the ups and downs of the ones she loves.
Her works in glass show, above all, a lust for life. Their sumptuous forms and rich colors are remarkably un-Dutch and bear witness to the Caribbean background of the artist. They have a cheerful, sunny, and sensuous character about them.
