A beautiful art book with a selection of 60 abstract paintings from the recent work (2008 – now) of Brussels based artist Stef Driesen.
Driesen brings forward an interest in a more ambient space, providing atmospheric presence in the work. The grayed palette offers moments of bright color and light breaking through giving a sense of landscape and deep, almost transcendental, fields. The cascading compositions and canyonlike perspectives conjure the movement of waterfalls and, in some cases, is fractured by architectural references. The body, once the primary subject of Driesen’s project, can, in his newer more abstract work, still be sensed at times in ghostly torso references.
With a text by Wouter Davidts.
