She won the Provincial Price of East Flanders for painting. Since 1984 Renée Lodewijckx holds personal and collective art exhibitions in several cities in Belgium, France, Holland, England, Italy, Croatia and the United States.
Her works are always part of a project spread over several years where she tries to visualize a central theme from different angulations. That way impressions sprout, traces of emotions and experiences rise gradually well considered but spontaneously.
She finds her challenges in huge projects such as wall faces, gardens but also smaller projects such as graphics and diaries are gratified subjects.Current events which move her emotionally or situations in her private live determine the themes of her work.
Ideas become series of mixed techniques with paint, ink, pastels, self-made paper, sheets,….but she also uses ceramics, felt, textile and glass to express herself.
Since 2008 she works in her studio also regularly Rossa di Cerva, northern Italy, an old shoe factory belonging to an art-loving hotel: ‘La Foresteria Valsesia’ in Rossa (Piemonte).In 2009/2010 the project came ‘Soft back from Black’ drawings, paintings and prints inspired by the Sermenza river at Varallo, northern Italy.
