Noëlla Roos is a drawer, painter and digital artist from the Netherlands and is currently living in Bali, the Island of the Gods.
She passionately enjoys the challenge to fuse classicism with a contemporary approach and the portrayal of the complexity of human emotions.The significance of her work involves a thorough apprehension of anatomy, composition, materials, and arabesque—the line and pattern of the body in movement. After all, Noella works with dancers, both modern and traditional. It is remarkable; the way her hand speaks in harmony with her dancing models. Translating movements and emotions into the abstraction of drawings- and later into paintings, uniquely distinctive in technique and artistry.
“Noëlla uses dance and music as a creative prop, a means to take the genre and techniques she knows best—that of drawing – beyond its usual analytical and synthetic potentialities” – Jean Couteau Asian Art News
