REFLECTIONS OF A WOMAN 1997

"In this series of paintings Gretta is talking not only about herself, but also about other women. She has found a way to represent women's nature. It is not her body any more, but every woman's body. They can still be self-portraits, but they also are portraits of the women of today, full of confidence about their own identity and conscious of their power."
August 1997 - Hanneke van der Werk - essay published published on the occasion of Gretta’s solo exhibition at  Wolseley Fine Arts Gallery, London.
