Pieter Vermeersch Biography

Originating from photographic sources, Pieter Vermeersch's work deploys painting as an instrument to create images that perpetually oscillate between abstraction and representation. In scanning the extremities of the medium and its relationship to architecture he looks for the degree zero of an image. His preoccupation where time, space and matter constutue the three main elements.

Throughout his work, these elements are mixed with subtle variations as in his colour-graded wall paintings and canvases. Vermeersch's colour gradients are the result of a meticulous and almost mathematical process by which the artist becomes a kind of human printer–blending paint into a smooth and seamless surface he conceals any trace of the labour involved in the making of the painting.

Behind their seemingly straightforward appearance, these paintings are the complex condensation of an ancient technique along with the painterly attempt to render the interpretation of a photographic source. Through this complex process of transformation, Vermeersch's paintings liberate themselves from objective referents and allow the viewer the intense sensory experience created by the all-over.
