This very recent installation at the Palais de Beaux Arts just got us very excited!

The subject of this work is a series of iconic pieces from the museum's Flemish collection, focusing specifically on Rubens' and Van Dyck's grand altarpieces. The installation is the result of a study and exploration of the paintings themselves, delving beneath their figurative appearance and looking at the very rules behind the composition, colour schemes and proportions of each piece. It is a precise process aimed at creating new contemporary images based on universal rules of beauty and perfection.

Then we started to dig deeper and found some more goodness from the artist, like this piece called 'Rome'.
