Irène Gerard

b 1958 (Eupen, Belgium)

The human form is the starting point for this artist's work, inspired by images from art history, recontextualised completely as her own.

Centre d’Expression et de Créativité La Hesse

The studio started as a painting workshop within La Hesse, a residential site that provides lodgings for adults with mental disabilities.

Since opening in 1992, the workshop has evolved and expanded, and in 2001, it was officially acknowledged as a Centre for Expression and Creativity (CEC). The workshop moved to the old barracks in Rencheux and thanks to a team of artist-coordinators, offers a wide variety of workshops in sketching, painting, engraving, sculpture, pottery, music, textiles, and animated video.
