ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Raoul De Keyser is a painters’ painter. De Keyser’s painting is in all its phases a pledge to the power of the medium, derived from seemingly insignificant scenes from his immediate living environment. The significatory framework of painting is never up for debate, there are neither photographic models nor elaborate studies. The paintings have a great presence, since they always faithfully follow the painted line, the layering of colours, continually revealing the loss of their subject matter.
In this search for the essential, De Keyser shows himself as a late Modernist painter, but just like Palermo – 13 years his junior – his work intrigues the viewer through its humour, its playfulness and a laconicism which is now being carried forward by an even younger generation of painters (for example his compatriot Luc Tuymans).
In collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S. M. A. K.), Ghent.
