Ghekiere Joris - Untitled
2013 - Oil on canvas - 160 x 200 cm
Belgian artist Joris Ghekiere (1955-2016) took up a unique and ambiguous position as a painter. He did not stick to one methodology, but explored various painting techniques and styles. In his work, internet images or his own photographs often serve as a starting point. This leads to an oeuvre in which figurative images and abstract images interact. Joris Ghekiere lived and worked in Klein Willebroek, where his artistic legacy is now managed by the Joris Ghekiere Foundation.
