Adalbert Gans (A - 1970)
Works and lives in Antwerp
The titles of his paintings and a conversation with the artist about motivation hint a spiritual inspiration. Too often, this kind of work is soft, sweet and amorphous...The creation of his images, the making ‘an sich’, is also very physical. He works horizontally. This means the creating is a physical process. The optical suggestion, as in painting, is less important in his creation process.
That is why Adalbert is not a painter in the traditional sense of the word. He makes his canvases like a photographer develops his pictures: flat, on the floor. Actions are: pouring, splashing and stirring the materials.
