    Thomas Frontini

    €45.00

    Thomas Frontini (°Kingston, 1967) lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. With a love of art history and background in paper conservation, the history of painting visibly weighs on his decision of palette and technique. His works show the strong influence of Italian Renaissance artists, combined with Surrealist tendencies, and a touch of irony. Thomas Frontini’s work is based on the premise that fantasy and reality are always clashing in one’s consciousness, particularly in dreams. Typically, Frontini uses strong foreground imagery, set against a background of intangible landscapes and tableaux of fluid colours. The depicted scenes seem to suggest a certain narrative; as if an attempt is made to recollect a vague memory, of which some bits have remained crystal clear and some bits have disappeared into oblivion. Frontini captures the viewer's gaze in strong images that are full of symbolism, references, and humour. Simultaneously apocalyptic and elegantly hopeful.

    Sculptures & Drawings, Herma De Wit

    €39.00

    Herma de Wit lives and works in Amsterdam. After studying at the Rietveld Academy and following a career in fashion de Wit shifted her interest to visual arts. Since 1999 she has been creating art pieces going from fragile sketches of flowers to robust bronze or wooden sculptures. A guiding principle in her practice is her fascination for natural cycles, which gives rise to reflections about emotion and processes of life and ephemerality. Distinctive in her work is her flawless sense of detail and technique, her balanced sensitivity and powerfull femininity.

    In the course of time, de Wit’s work has become more monumental; by incorporating steel and robust materials and enlarging the scale she triggers a tension between the vulnerability and strength of nature.

    Ruimtes voor nieuwe rituelen

    €29.00

    Is onze omgang met de dood de voorbije jaren in het westen veranderd? Hoe kunnen we in een seculiere context meer duurzame ruimtes voor afscheid ontwikkelen? Kan een samenwerking tussen de kunsten- en zorgsector bijdragen tot welzijnsbevorderende alternatieven voor afscheidsrituelen? Zorgt het co-creëren van nieuwe rituelen voor meer sociale cohesie en aldus meer duurzaamheid in de samenleving? Deze en zoveel meer vragen lagen aan de basis van een onderzoek dat de voorbije drie jaar aan de HOGENT (KASK & Humane Wetenschappen) is gevoerd onder de noemer ‘Open Einde’ Het is voornamelijk in de ontmoeting tussen welzijn en kunsten, in de tussenruimte, dat dit onderzoek naar nieuwe ruimtes voor (afscheids) rituelen werd gevoerd. Net door deze domeinen buiten de geijkte paden te sturen, kon een meerduidigheid in de (vormen)taal en een vernieuwende kijk op de fysieke en mentale ruimte voor afscheidsrituelen ontstaan.

    Things & Air, Rein Dufait

    €39.00

    For Rein Dufait, the definition of sculpture is the adding or subtracting of material. His rigorous approach to his chosen medium has led him to develop a singular — perhaps also solitary — practice that is nourished by an insistent curiosity about material (whether natural or manmade) and a fascination with form (whether organic or artistic). In his work, Dufait confronts the fundamental questions of sculpture: how to divide space; how to combine textures; how to create volume and height. His sculptures are never narrative, seldom figurative, but often refer to organic structures. Always human in scale, they reveal an efficiency in construction that is fundamental to their meaning.

    Heterotopia, Joost Colpaert

    €39.00

    Joost Colpaert (°1965, lives and works in Oudenaarde, Belgium) has been producing paintings and videos for many years in which recurring cycles, fluent progress and the force of water play a central theme. He is inspired by his musical background: where a painting is spatially restricted, music can continue to flow (eternally). In a series of paintings from around 2000 the idea of recurring cycles was expressed in the form of rings, streamers and tyres which wound around and through each other. Since 2002 he has become more and more inspired by water and rivers; a reflection of a recurring cycle. He works this figuratively using maps and landscapes, but also abstractly.

    The Matrix Project, Thierry Lagrange

    €35.00

    The Matrix Project comprises two contexts, namely photographic work of architect Thierry Lagrange and the self-reflective trajectory that he developed during his doctorate at KULeuven. Lagrange’s practice-based research developed to an autonomous artistic project, in which he studied the signification and nature of observation within a creative process. Through his multifaceted practice as an architect, photographer and researcher, Lagrange developed ‘The Matrix Method’; a method that stimulates creativity within different contexts and can be implemented for example in art education. For the Matrix Project, 25 years’ worth of photographs was entered into a context of research and presents a new perspective on different ways of seeing in our present visual culture.

    Thierry Lagrange (°1970) is a civil engineer/architect. He runs the architecture office ALT-architectuur. He is active as a photographer and videomaker and finished his doctorate Look Here Now, Mapping Design Trajectories. Legrange is lecturer an researcher at the Faculty of Architecture, KU Leuven.

    All Well, Cindy Wright

    €45.00

    Cindy Wright creates large-scale oil paintings on canvas. At first glance the monumental still life paintings appear to be photo-realistic, using the photographic methods of cropping compositions and intense source lighting. But on closer inspection, the range of mark making and painterly applications become astoundingly apparent.
          Wright’s work echoes the morbide tradition of ‘vanitas’ from the Dutch Old Masters of the 16th and 17th Century. Between beauty and decay, archetypal symbols like the human scull, rotten fruit, raw flesh and dead animals traditionally represent the transience of life. Within a contemporary context, these symbols may refer to mass consumption or the exploitation of natural resources. However, this is not essentially the artist’s intend. Rather than being shocking or moralising, the images evoke a sense of peacefulness, silence and fragility. Wright’s subjects are taken from her immediate surroundings and are transformed into iconic images for our times.

    This catalogue is published on the occasion of Wright’s solo exhibition ‘Dead Poetry’ in November 2018 at the Castle of Gaasbeek.
