"Exhale" and "After the storm": two exclusive art works by Pamela Peeters

Dimensions: 70" x 50"
Mounted on Plexi

Artist Statements:
The works were introduced during an exclusive vernissage at the 10th anniversary of Art Basel Miami, last December of 2011.

"As an environmental economist, specialized in Sustainable Development for more than 15 years, I have noticed that the dominant accent in our current transition to a sustainable planet is of economic origin and the vehicle who makes this happen - Mother Earth - is too often left out of the equation.

With my multi-dimensional and international scope of work, touching four different regions of the world: Asia, Middle East, Europe and the USA, I try to restore the balance within the trinity that is at the cornerstone of Sustainable Development : people, planet, profit.

Marisa Belger from MSNBC describes my personality as 'a person who follows a philosophy that’s accessible to everyone from the hardcore planet protector to the person who has recently begun thinking about the environment.'

I am honored to present a summary of several years of artistic expression during the historic 10th anniversary of Art Miami Basel.”

Price: Triptych (all three) $7,000 or $2,500 for one (*)

your own portrait by belgian artist nicolas binsfeld

Your own portrait by Belgian artist Nicolas Binsfeld, whose style was at first impressionistic and later on evolved into German expressionism. The artist's works belong to private collectors and also featured at the Museum of Art and History in Luxemburg, the Museum of Fine Art in Charleroi, the CGER Banque as well as the Chamber of Representatives in Brussels. Mr Binsfeld was the first person to create an entire cartoon in oil paint, which was edited by the famed publishing house Dupuis. The current portrait was made based on a photograph.

We believe that beauty is timeless, so how about turning your natural grace into an eternal piece.
