GUY VANDENBRANDEN (1926 – 2014)
As a member of the “Art Abstrait” (Abstract art) group he discovered pure and non-figurative conceptions of compositions and applied them in his work. He uses geometric shapes which he integrates into the architecture.
Vandenbranden always departs from the same style principles: a strict limitation of material and form, a solid construction, pure and simple images and a clear rhythm. He uses modern materials in his works: concrete, polyester and aluminium.
Vandenbranden’s works of art are closer to scientific thought than artistic expressions based on intuition. Clarity, functionality and clear logic stand out in his works. For several years now, the artist has considered his paintings and reliefs as projects that will one day be carried out in a monumental format.
