The light-radiating etchings of Yolanda Eveleens evoke a subtle world of organic structures in which nature and man are blended in perfect harmony. In her latest work the theme is the human body, but not in a stereotype manner: Eveleens dives inside and succeeds in drawing the beholder into miraculous processes such as breath, blood circulation and digestion, thereby linking our inner world to the outer world and connecting micro- and macrocosmos.
