Loïc Van Zeebroek
Loïc Van Zeebroek (b. 1994, BE) paintings question the construction of the pictorial image, from figuration to abstraction and vice-versa. The paintings of Loïc Van Zeebroek create a vacuum; a space without pressure. With a historically charged medium – painting – he manages, through a careful form of cherry picking and
elimination to create spaces for contemplation. His works depart from romantic landscape painting, self-made and found educational geographic images. He strips these sources of inspiration from their initial teleology and adjectives and creates in this way, both in his figurative and monochrome work, spaces for contemplation and introspection. In his landscape paintings painting nature becomes an investigation of the nature of painting. If you listen carefully to Loïc Van Zeebroek, can hear the silence.
Work by the artist is held in the collections of Museum Voorlinden and S.M.A.K., Ghent and Dallas (USA).
