Liefooghe Frank - Untitled
1988 - Pencil, charcoal on paper - 21 x 29,5
Frank Liefooghe born in Ieper in 1943 studied at the St-Lucas institute and at the Ghent Academy. Since the sixties of the last century, he has been a free-spirited artist dealing with questions on a global level: peace, ecology, the future of our civilization. He builds installations and peace monuments around these themes far and wide. The exhibition in Theobald's Boat House is an interim and painterly account of this quest for? A Better World ?. In his beautiful, narrative paintings, always acrylic on Nepalese paper, we see African earth tones, South American Mayan themes and above all philosophy from Buddhism and Taoism (CHI or cosmic energy).
