FRANCIS MAERE FINE ARTS GALLERY
Showcasing an exquisite selection of influential artists, all connected by a common country.
These works illustrate the influences artists such as George Minne, Henri Evenepoel, Emile Claus, Frits Van den Berghe,
Gustave De Smet, Valerius De Saedeleer, Constant Permeke, Léon Spilliaert etc. have had on avant-garde movements such as realism,
Flemish impressionism, symbolism, expressionismand surrealism.
They were all creators, contributors and, in fact, milestones in the history of Belgian art.
With a distinct predilection towards 19th and 20th century Belgian paintings, sculptures and drawings,
we also offer other international artists to a discerning clientele.
FRANCIS MAERE FINE ARTS presents from 28 APRIL 2019 - 28 JULY 2019
ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: Michel Buylen
"La Juste Confusion"
MICHEL BUYLEN (Gent °1953) is a multi-faceted and headstrong painter, who never ceases to astonish with both his amazing virtuosity and his new take on centuries-old subjects; such as the nude (or the naked?), the child, the landscape, the sea as an obligate abstraction and the portrait as compromise and confrontation. Michel Buylen is anything but a conventional artist. Aided by acrylic, he succeeds in retranslating life, in all its diversity and nuances, enriching it with his own vision.
Each new work forms a window to a sublimated reality, sometimes poetic and moving, often distant and surprising. It is this combination of vulnerable beauty and mysterious estrangement that gives Buylen a unique place within Belgium’s contemporary art scene.
