Jan De Viiegher (B) paints what he sees. Only what is concrete, sensorially perceptible and clearly definable, exists. His hunger for sensually, esthetically striking images cannot be satisfied. He takes them out of magazines or photographs them himself. He paints Venice, India, vaginas, landscapes, portraits, ... The reality exists out of images. The image is the reality. De Vliegher uses a baroque composition model. The colours and lines seem to create a constant movement from the center to the margins giving an openness to the painting. Content and form come perfectly together. De Vliegher studied the old masters like Rubens and Titiaan and experimented in a paintfactory to develop his own paint. Painting an sich is for him the main motif and the only alibi to overwhelm us with an incredible variety of subjects and styles.
