DESCRIPTION
D+T Project is pleased to announce the first solo presentation in Belgium of new works byHannu Prinz (Berlin, 1978).
 
Prinz’s creative development remains closely linked with profound emotional matters. Thus the titles of his artworks uncover deep attachments to intimate stories. His multifaceted creative process, which sometimes ironically refers to various periods of art history and is greatly inspired by music and poetry, results in arrangements that are marked by strong visual effects. For his latest series, Prinz explores the properties of leather by transforming it into essential pictorial substance. The sculpted surfaces of the canvases tend to blur the limits between physical presence and the printed image. By choosing to employ handcrafted leather, the artist unveils an individual technique regarding the notion of painting.
 

Hannu Prinz lives and works in Berlin. His work has been mainly shown in Europe and is collected by both institutions and private collectors. His work will also be soon featured at the notorious Boghossian Foundation (Brussels)
