Koen Delaere

Koen Delaere’s process and methods of making start out simple, using colour silk screening or small drawings made by friends and children. The drawings are then filed through a copy machine, where a black and white pattern begins to emerge. Delaere embraces the truth that anybody can make nonsense drawings, fold paper or pour ink onto the silk to be screened. It is the artist’s intuition that distorts simple skills and gestures, creating complexity on the surface and in the process, allowing the work a life of its own.
