Xavier Verhoest : the world’s fragility.




Xavier Verhoest, Belgian born in Congo (1964, ex Zaire), lives and works in Nairobi.

From the pages: “Many of his works are entrenched in his experience of war zones or with groups in the margin of the Kenyan society. He has created a broad range of work responding to the events, emotions, and relationships that have filled his life. These are works that mediate on universal themes of mortality, fragility, and the natural world.”

NIGRO. Spanish Abstract Expressionist Painter.


Francisco Casariego, aka “Nigro”, Spain, Oviedo 1919-2010.

I like thinking that the painter constructed his lines and colours surging from the dark the way a builder raises his timber. Both can imagine lights, depths and doors linked to the structure they create.

THOMAS LEROOY . Sculptures: classical, heroïc statues revisited.





Thomas Lerooy, 1981, Belgium.






Lerooy Thomas,controversy_-2011,bronze
‘Controversy’, bronze, 2011.



From the pages: “The heroic pose of each statue stands in stark contrast to the bizarre attributes they are laden with. Evidently, the process of decay has already started to affect the sculptures: some statues seem to melt away while others appear to have been repeatedly perforated or split in half. The heroism has, in other words, deteriorated into tragic degeneration: Thomas Lerooy transforms the sculptures’ aura of eternity into perpetual decay. ”
