"Aline JANSEN frees herself from figurative and abstract questions often important to art professionals and visitors to integrally inscribe into a franc contemporaneity....
the artist feels the necessity to come back to manual artistic work by using drawing (charcoal, pencils, inks) in order to re-introduce the human being … ...
She takes possession of the chapels upwardly to the choir with her abstracts material spaces described as « Paysages mentaux » by Christian Skimao (art critic), dreamed spaces in which she includes, in addition to materials and paintings, pieces of photographs but by giving large room to drawing.
Aline JANSEN is a researcher in the scientific and artistic meanings. Very young, she learned different techniques at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Montpellier and developed her theoretical knowledge at University of Montpellier during her Art History study. Rapidly, at 21, she exhibits at the Museum of Laon, Museum Paul Valéry in Sète, Museum Werra-Kalibergbau in Germany to name a few !
By her associated spaces, the artist invites the spectators to enter into a timeless moment full of dreams and spirituality, in order to mentally create their own universes, their own spaces based on their private experience."

About exposure to "la Chapelle Ste Anne à Arles, France"
"... The return to a different singularity, rich in technological inventions, today leads many artists to question painting again.
... It is ultimately a mental process where any deconstruction precedes new construction."
"The spectator must scrutinize the hidden areas of the canvas to discover a hidden, improbable, hazy world...the reality is integrated into the fantastic in a fragmented vision which favours fragments and suggestions ...The temporalities mingle between the present and future. Thus by taking a path which leads us towards the painted thing, we do not advance in truth, since the painting remains a fiction, but take again foot in its enthralling story."
Doctor of Letters, Member of the Union of Writers of Art Critics (A.I.C.A)
"With an impeccable, luminous and symbolic aesthetic, the work of Aline Jansen, pushes the boundaries of reality. Car wrecks or disembodied structures, anamorphoses the derisory of our society. Alchemist, she humanizes and sublimates the ordinary and we can say that Aline Jansen is a visionary painter of great talent"
Philippe Lemoine: writer, poet
“…. Neither entirely figurative nor completely abstract, Aline Jansen's works are developed from fragments of his paintings enriched by the presence of photographs taken during his capture of the urban world. This staging, a true interpretation of the media and themes, gives rise to a new representation of reality, modifying the dimensions involved and the perception of his works
The omnipresence of the car, a motorized extension of the human body caught in an incessant movement, replies to an urban architecture fragmented in space as in time. We can then speak of the deliberate desire to move boundaries, to open new meeting spaces, in an aesthetic and spontaneous confrontation where the artist develops a recomposed language, a personal syntax.
To this writing with wide possibilities, Aline Jansen entrusts an independent but coherent time and poetics; the revelation of meaning is shared confidently with the imagination of the visitor, powerfully carried by a feeling of elevation and freedom from reality.”
