Pieter Vermeersch

b. 1973, Belgium

Pieter Vermeersch's (Kortrijk, 1973) artistic research of painting expands beyond the confinement of the canvas. His work often consists of large spatial interventions, consistently subverting territory whether conceived for an exhibition space or adjusted to a pre-existing architectural site. In addition to the immersive, painterly installations and gradient wall paintings, his oeuvre also includes an array of ephemeral zero degree paintings on canvas. Pieces are brought to a concrete reality by the irreversible process of chiseling and milling natural stone. His works are complimented by a series of photographic prints of marble slabs reactivated with delicate touches of paint, a stroke of the brush or gradual colour planes. With representation and abstraction set as parameters, Vermeersch's oeuvre triggers infinitesimal perceptual experiences, presenting us with a sense of colour that is referential of the gap between appearance and disappearance; the gap in which the divisions between two and three dimensional, immaterial and tangible, time and space are blurred.
