Bart Stolle is working on a complex body of work that mainly consists of paintings, drawings and animated fims. In an age when everyone is being overwhelmed by sensory, and more specifically digital stimuli, Stolle opts for lentor. Low Fixed Media Show is the name of his body of work and it functions as an advertising agency for himself or as an alternative entertainment company.
His paintings and drawings consist of carefully selected and often geometrical units. He analyses similarities between the logic of the computer and the human mind, but he is convinced of the superiority of the human intelligence.
His films have been made frame per frame. Simple basic shapes and lines are moving over the screen and undergo typical basic transformations. Many of his works formally refer to twentieth century modernism as well as computer language.
Bart Stolle has previously had solo exhibitions at CONVENT Art Space in Ghent, Ryan Lee Gallery in New York, S.M.A.K. in Ghent, De Brakke Grond in Amsterdam and STUK in Leuven.
He was invited for group shows at M HKA in Antwerp, the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Prague, Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort, Laznia Centre for Contemporary Art in Gdansk, De Loketten of the Flemish Parliament in Brussels, Coup de Ville in Sint-Niklaas, De Warande in Turnhout, BUDA kunstencentrum in Kortrijk, Telic Gallery in Los Angeles, Centre for Contemporary Art in Warsaw and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Shanghai.
Bart Stolle joined the gallery in 2008.
