Lives and works in Maarkedal (BE)
Out of an urge to give an extra dimension to his photographs, Alex De Bruycker started to make paintings, not through the use of digital techniques but with acrylic paint. By applying physical layers in his work, in which he controls varying extents of opacity and translucency through his careful selection of materials, the artist creates a ‘veil’ that masks and reveals areas of each painting. De Bruycker’s love for minimalist architecture and composition is clearly evident and inspired by Claudio Silvestrin and Richard Serra.
