Temporality and vulnerability are the main themes in my artwork. I choose my medium and topics intuitively. As source material I use pictures of people. It is not primarily about similarity but about content. Despite that I paint and draw what I see there is a high degree of abstraction. I make the original image my own by a process of distortion and blur.

Since 1999 she has had an artistic practice as an independent visual artist.
Irene van den Bos is fascinated by the vulnerability and transience of human and nature's life and its pure power and beauty.
"When I paint people, such as in the Koppen series, it's not in a classical-realistic way, but I am guided by my intuition."
