“Coup de coeur”

The Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium present from 22 April to 1 August Vision Paintings, the new exhibition by Thomas Houeago who worked and lived in Brussels from 1995 to 2003.  He currently lives in Los Angeles, California.

His works show an emotional strength in neo-classical and contemporary art.  The confrontation of Jacques-Loouis David’s Death of Marat is surprising.

Today, nature takes centre stage: suns and moons, flowers and trees, rocks and oceans are all rendered in opulent, luminescent colours and vibrant, undulating lines. Nature seems primitive, mysterious and seductive, overpowering and resplendent.

A must see!
