The confrontation between nature and culture as echoed in man-made constructions is the recurring theme through the work of Hilde Overbergh. Exploring the ways in which we create our own hideaways from the outside world, Hilde’s work reflects on the strategies we devise to make our everyday environment livable. In this architectural context, the boundaries between the protected interior and world outside sometimes seem to evaporate, offering the viewer a look through the walls, zooming in on the life behind them. While the pictorial vocabulary and use of colors have evolved over the years, Hilde’s work has always been and remains a reflection of the world as she perceives it.
