Gerhard Hofland

With Koen Delaere, the paint has to do the work. His canvasses emerge from expressive and energetic session, in which he does not shy away from unorthodox methods or experiments. Simultaneously, Delaere's paintings are clearly directed, and appear beyond any notion of coïncidence. They are autonomous objects: explosions of deep poetic intensity that find their way to the spectator through the material and the ability of the artist to modify it.
