Walter Swennen. PIF

ISBN: 9782873172251 (PB - NL/ E/ F)

As the days go by, we know, artists accumulate notes, sketches and texts-in short, scraps with no immediate consistency but which we guess are the origins of an idea that is destined later to find its finished form and to be the basis of a work. Walter Swennen has, for decades, been putting drawings or sentences on paper and piling them up. From this daily exercise, he has taken a selection of just over 200 sketches. We will find humour masking seriousness and detachment going hand in hand with a sort of wisdom. And in Swennen's daily excursions, we find the Belgian artist's entire, sensitive mental view of the world, whose work has now generated a revived interest among collectors and critics. Walter Swennen, born in Brussels in 1946, lives and works in Antwerp. As an artist, he has had exhibitions since the 1980s in Antwerp, Brussels, Paris, Milan, Amsterdam and New York. Many museums and centres for contemporary art have displayed his painted works. His pictorial productions have greatly influenced young contemporary artists.
