Almine Rech Gallery is pleased to present the third solo exhibition in Brussels, of Belgian artist, Matthieu Ronsse.

What first strikes the viewer about Matthieu Ronsse’s work is his remarkable mastery of the paintbrush and his almost casual method of selecting his materials and his artworks. Indeed, Ronsse’s technique is reminiscent of those Masters of classical painting such as Van Eyck, Rembrandt, Greco, Cranach, Velazquez, Renoir, etc. However, he doesn’t confine himself to classical materials and seeks to surpass any temporal or material limits.

His work is intuitive, spontaneous. The artworks hanging from the wall or placed on the floor of the exhibition spaces, housing one of the artist’s shows, rarely reflect the original subject matter. The layers capture the artist’s different states of mind, as well as spaces: his studio, his garden, the walls of a friend’s house, etc. Each oeuvre can be said to bear testimony to the time and attention to detail devoted to it by the artist, as well as the distress he has subjected them to: revising, cutting up, reworking, mixing, assembling, even tearing … All are practices commonly used in Ronsse’s work. All of his works undergo change or transformation and are rendered obscure until the very last moment, leaning towards iconoclasm. They may even be read as a denial or rejection of perfection.

Matthieu Ronsse was born in 1981 in Courtai (Belgium). He lives and works in Mullem. His work has been the subject of several exhibitions in Belgium and abroad, notably at the SMAK (2003), the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens (2006), the Marta Herford Museum (2006), Cultuurcentrum Mechelen (2007), MKM Museum Kuppersmühle (2008), Bonner Kunstverein (2010), MuZee (2010), Sint-Baafskathedraal Ghent (2012) and the Bonvicini Palace, Venice (2013).



DANIEL LERGON
CORRESPONDANCE METALLIQUE
November 9th - December 19th, 2013 / BRUSSELS
Opening Saturday, November 9th, 2013
5 - 8pm

Almine Rech gallery is pleased to announce the second exhibition of German artist Daniel Lergon,in Brussels.

In his new serie, Daniel Lergon presents works in which pulverised iron or copper coated canvases serve as painting bases. Through the painting process of acidified water, these oxidise and colours then arise.

While light sensitive material, such as fluorescent or retro-reflexive weaving fabric, played a major role in Lergon’s previous series, this time “chemical charged” metal surfaces will be shown and their potentials activated and pictorially treated. During the exhibition, one’s attention will be especially drawn towards the interaction of iron and copper works with a central diptych consisting of both metals.

Daniel LERGON is born in 1978 in Boon (Germany). He lives and works in Berlin. His work has been the subject of several exhibitions, notably at the Esbjerg Kunstmuseum (Denmark, 2006), AEREA (Sweden, 2008), Von-der-Heydt-Museum (Germany, 2009), Daimler Contemporary (Germany, 2011) and at the Signum Foundation (Venice, 2013).
