Benjamin Moravec


Benjamin Moravec is an artist who maintains a firm belief in the meaning of painting, even in a world that is inundated by a constantly changing mass of imagery. Using painterly means, which, incidentally, he yields in a highly virtuosic manner, Moravec questions our contemporary visual culture. He uses, to this end, the picture-in-picture technique. The position of the painted image, painted in a painting, which in itself is already a representation, is a crucial question in his work. Moravec also investigates the relationships between images and the public versus private nature of their mediatisation, whether those images originate from the world of painting, photography, advertising, cinema or the internet. Benjamin Moravec is an artist who deals with the contemporary dimensions of (the) art (of painting) in a very sensitive, intelligent and professional manner.(Source: Deweer Gallery)
