Liesbeth Van Ginneken (1966) is first and foremost a true painter and an independent and important European visual artist. Oil paint is the most impacting medium with which she communicates to the outside world. Her interdisciplinary artprojects as Pieces of Art (1998) and Going Dutch (2001), Rotterdam Cultural Capital of Europe, highlight her conceptual and organisational skills. The combinations of these skills are unusual and in this case the recipe for her success.
