At first sight, Mireille Duthoy's work seems quite abstract. Often coincidental in the choice of the theme, she creates a visionary world on the canvas, and paints from strong emotions such as powerlessness and frustration. Her intimate hallucinations provide an insight into the artist's world and life. The paintings Lawine and Windhoos were already an early statement in the 1970s against global warming and the pollution of the sea surface. The work Mont Louis Zeevervuiling by the late painter from Pelt has achieved international acclaim, including bronze during 'Young Artists from Europe' in 1985 (USA).

Mireille Duthoy (BE) is a visual artist, who was born in Bruges (1933) and died in Neerpelt (2004). She completed her education at the Academy of Bruges and attended studio sessions with portrait painter Van Belleghem and landscape painter Costenobel. She has had various exhibitions at home and abroad in cities such as Antwerp, Eindhoven, Dallas, Lüdenscheid, New York and Tokyo. Her work has received several awards. She won bronze in 1983 at "Young Artists from Europe" (Dallas, USA) and was a laureate of the North Limburg Industry Prize and in 1985 she won the first prize at Rotary North Limburg. Several of her works were purchased by the Province of Limburg, the Belgian Government, the city spar Hasselt and Gemeente Overpelt.

This installation is part of the 3-day Expo-route from 23.10-25.10 in various locations in and around Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof, the Canal Zone and Gemeente Pelt.
