Albert Baronian

Stand: b26 & b28


Albert Baronian opened his first gallery in 1973 with a threefold responsability: a long-term development of each artist’s career: acting as a liaison to international galleries and museums and placing works in collections, to create an historical archive for each artist, and to act as an accessible public space in which the exhibitions become an exemplary gesture of the power of subjectivity to the audience at large. The programme is dedicated to contemporary art as well as important artistic movements. In her recent work, Leen Voet suspends the question of what to paint. She converts found visual or literary sources, or ‘given’ imagery, works in their own right, into paintings, drawings and other media. In her series of new paintings and drawings, entitled Bert Vandael, she seeks direct dialogue with work she produced at art school. These include academic studies from nature executed in watercolour and tempera. Stripped of their original contexts, the sheer numbers of images makes it clear that deciding 'what' to paint neither was nor is the issue. Instead, manual training, evoking the complexities of the discipline and the skills traditionally associated with an academic art education form the essence of, and the reason behind, what we observers receive as images.
