Alain Biltereyst

Alain Biltereyst
Lives and works near Brussels, Belgium

The plywood paintings series refer to the Geometric Abstraction and Hard-Edge paintings of the sixties (Josef Albers, Kenneth Noland, Frank Stella). If these movements were about pure painting, A.T. Biltereyst’s abstractions evoke references to contemporary everyday life. The raw wood on which he works, the deliberate errors in the geometric shapes and the inaccuracies created while painting refer to graffiti art dynamics. With a background in graphic design, Biltereyst is fascinated by the vividness and struggle of commercial and other signs in the public arena. A poster, a design on a truck, logos, ads out in the street,… all these signs are part of an everyday idiom, blurring the lines between culture and subculture.

The work is modest and usually not very large. “It is my intention to make poetic work and to be as simple as possible.”
