Raoul De Keyser, 1930-2012, Deinze (BE).
Raoul De Keyser is a Belgian painter born in Deinze. From 1964 onwards he built a highly personal body of work that is exceptionally difficult to categorise; he successfully reconciled a number of apparent contradictions such as figuration versus abstraction and the physicality of paint versus the ephemerality of the image. His work also explored the fundamentals of painting whilst also referring to his personal life and surroundings. De Keyser took the principles of the Nieuwe Visie (New Vision) and Fundamental Painting in the 1970s and used them to develop his own idiom, which was to bring him international recognition.
In 2018-2019 Raoul De Keyser has a travelling solo show on view at S.M.A.K. in Ghent and Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.
Important solo exhibitions were held at Inverleith House in Edinburgh, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent, Portikus in Frankfurt, Kunsthalle Bern, The Douglas Hyde Gallery in Dublin, Whitechapel Gallery in London, FRAC Auvergne in Clermont-Ferrand, De Pont in Tilburg, The Renaissance Society in Chicago, Kunstverein Sankt Gallen, Museu Serralves in Porto, amonst many others.
De Keyser was also included in major international group exhibitions such as Documenta IX, curated by Jan Hoet, and the Venice Biennale of 2007, which was curated by Robert Storr.
In 2012 Zeno X Gallery organised a special hommage exhibition to commemorate the life and work of Raoul De Keyser.
Raoul De Keyser joined the gallery in 1988.
