Info

Jenny Verplanke: Although Jenny continues in her own characteristic style, there is a continuing evolution. The sparsity of hues pauses along the way to allow the entrance of more colour. They are indeed small planes, but they exist... Jenny has no trouble in bringing colour to her canvasses, but with allowing it to remain. But now and again, in an exuberant burst of restrained emotion, the colour emerges from the grey expanse as a liberating moment of laughter during a serious speech.The surprising use of figures peers from around the corner. Human figures, tables and chairs, cup and plates all display the ever-present influence of African objects and stories

Christoph Van Daele is known for his vibrant use of color and large scale pieces often capturing stirring emotions in a three dimensional effect. Christoph's paintings follow in the tradition of the color field painters such as Mark Rothko or Barnett Newman. His work contains a spiritual component sometimes lacking in abstract works and the paintings have their own specific language. For my abstract paintings, I use a technique that is unique in the world. It is a technique that I have invented by experimenting for years. I have connected, so to speak, 'water' and 'oil'. My colourful abstract pieces are constructed by "happy accident", as the combination of different paints interact. "I talk art, I think art, I dream about art, I look at art, I read about art, and occasionally, I make art."

His knowledge of the basic techniques of gips was learned naturally in is father's workshop. In order to work on modeling and sculpture, he became interested in various materials and their associations, as well, with applied finishes.
