'For the third year in a row, my gallery will be present at Brafa. For us, this fair has become unmissable both on a Belgian as well as an international level. It allows us to meet a wider audience than that of contemporary art collectors (as in our other fairs: Fiac, Art Basel Miami, Brussels Art, Frieze NY and Miart) and to introduce them to our contemporary artists, but also to open our proposal to more historical artists.'
'What I particularly appreciate at Brafa, is the dialogue with the great dealers of tribal art, high quality fine art and antiques. I find it a pleasure to meet specialists and experts in their fields with whom to converse about our tastes and passions.'
Pierre Alechinsky, Karel Appel, Davide Balula, Miguel Berrocal, Bram Bogart, Kendell Geers, Sanam Khatibi, Sean Landers, Thomas Lerooy, Adam McEwen, Sam Moyer, Reinhoud, Jeanloup Sieff, Gert & Uwe Tobias, Léon Wuidar, Maurice Wyckaert
We would like to highlight a few important works that we will present at our booth:
Beyond the pictorial power of the painting Twee Figuren, by Karel Appel, it is also its provenance that attracts attention. For a long time it throned in the office of Hergé, father of Tintin. He had acquired the painting from his great friend the merchant Marcel Stal. Hergé was a passionate collector and was close to the gallerists of his time. The painting was later bought by a Belgian collection, through the intermediary of Stéphane Janssen (another great friend of Hergé). Today, I have the chance to present it at Brafa.
Embrace, a sculpture by Thomas Lerooy will also be one of the major works at the booth. It was created for the Petit Palais in Paris in 2015, the first of four museum exhibitions that have punctuated the life of Thomas for the past 4 years (Museum Dhont Dhaenens in 2017, Château de Gaasbeek in 2018 and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels planned in May–August 2019).
Bram Bogart (1921–2012, The Netherlands) will be present for the first time at the gallery's booth and marks the beginning of our collaboration with the estate of the artist. In the logical continuation of the work done to reestablish Léon Wuidar on the Belgian and international scene, we decided to confront works of Bogart with those of Sam Moyer, Adam McEwen and Davide Balula. Work on material, gesture and surface.
I am also proud to present a large Tartan painting by Sean Landers (born 1964, USA), superb gouaches of 1969 by Maurice Wyckaert (1923–1996, Belgium), a set of 10 photographs by Jeanloup Sieff, a small abstract landscape of 1951 by Pierre Alechinsky, as well as a painting from the 1960s by Léon Wuidar.
