Statement

The movement between abstract and figurative that is constantly putting photos and paintings at risk, is a constant theme in the work of Vincent Geyskens. In his incisive explorations with paint he highlights the problem of painting by combining abstract and figurative in an apparently smooth way. He switches easily from one style to another, thus putting not just his medium into question, but also subverting the way we look at things. Geyskens' heterogeneous work comes from an uninterrupted quest into formal basics of painting and its difficult position within today's consumer society and within the contemporary artworld itself. His paintings all come over as very conscious and often have a - albeit subtle - ironic, polemic effect. Geyskens' work makes a theme of the problematic character of creating images in a period that suffers from image inflation and habit.
