New display : Abstract landscapes

The Abstract Art Museum celebrates the change of season with a display exploring abstract landscapes.

Pure non-figurative art is almost non-existent. Artists who make a composition only with planes and colour, creating something out of nothing, is rather rare. Well-known examples are Piet Mondrian and Max Bill.

Most ‘abstract’ artists start from a reality that inspires them, such as a specific landscape. Their perspectives are often diverse. So you have painters like Renée Demeester who express their feelings through an abstracted landscape, or others who deal with the Flemish countryside very rationally and humorously, like Wout Vercammen.

In this display, we highlight and explore the whole spectrum of abstracted Belgian landscapes.
