André Bogaert // The ’85 & ’86 series // collages – paintings
We are honoured to invite you to our second solo show of André Bogaert (1920-1986). Works from the two last years of his life, many of which have never been shown to the public, are gathered within this exhibition. The series are of abstract oil paintings and collages. The relation between the two different mediums are that he made the collages as blueprint for the larger works. During this period, Dré (as he was nicknamed) was diagnosed with cancer, and literally used his last life energy to create these compositions. His strength can be reflected through his powerful artistic language, and most importantly these works are keystone to a long and fascinating career.
