Kris De Pleckerº1967 www.krisdeplecker.be
Kris De Plecker is a multidisciplinary artist living in Opwijk and a teacher at the "Sint-Lukas Kunsthumaniora" in Brussels. Amongst hundreds of the flea market objects and books that fill his studio, the artist prints his unique work. His works on paper are woodcuts, printed as a pièce unique and built up layer by layer. Each work is a try-out of colors and pattern combinations. A certain transparency is inherent in the work, partly due to the absorbing slightly yellowed paper made during the second world war that the artist uses for his creations. The frames are handmade by the artist himself.
