ROOM 1

Larsen Bervoets
folding/bending/cutting/painting
19 Mar. - 16 May


 
Larsen Bervoets (Antwerp, 1979) lives and works in Antwerp. He studied Art at the RIKSO in Antwerp and continued his studies at the Academy of Art in Ghent where he graduated Cum Laude.

Bervoets’ technical and harsh abstraction on carefully created carriers, embody a vibrant and crisp aesthetic. Each creation is a unique configuration, consisting of carefully chosen areas of colour that support the visual complexity of the composition. The compositions arise from sketches and notes of impressions in order and environment. From beginning to end, the colours are pressed into suprematic color sculptures. There is a long tradition in the art of this luminal form abstraction and this work ties in with it in dialectics.

The work explores a “push” and “pull” of pure geometry and colour, often with a deliberate spatial contrast. The emphasis is on the economy of form, the fullness of colour and the flatness of the surface and feel like visual poetry, often created from an elegant solution to a nonexistent strategy of working and embracing chance.

The work is not intended to be experienced in a minimalist way but is deliberately not representative and avoids images and metaphors, everything clearly has no narrative meaning.

What you see is what you see.
