Mark Verstockt

In the 70's Verstockt is part of an international movement that reinvigorates geometric the abstraction from the 50s , although with less orthodoxy than their predecessors. Under headings like 'neo-constructivism'and 'minimalism' he studied the autonomy of form, color and texture to the perception of the artwork and its environment. Verstockt translates this issue of confrontation into spatial forms to challenge and integrate within the architectural environment.

The antithesis unbounded – limited and the duality in a directive movement expressed by an arrow that itself never leaves, appear in 1999 and 2000 in two unexpected and surprising images. In the first, A wing to chase angels, 1999 the arrow has been transformed into a three-metre wing in pale greyish-blue metal. The image is as motionless as it is vulnerable. The associations the work calls up are in line with his previous works. The result of the change is in a different way of considering relations that have consequences for proportion and form. In proportion the second one, Soul boat for the 21st century, exceeds. With its six-metre length this perfectly finished boat, after the example of the Asmat, sails into the four directions of the infinity of a new era. It is a bottomless boat packed with metaphorical language, which is carried along on the stream of immaterial matter.

Michael Markwick

A Michael Markwick painting is a collision: things have slammed together and now they are ready to fly apart. War, television, childhood, nature, art, and human bodies, all offer up their particular forms of anxiety, nostalgia, and abjection in his work. An image of a tree fractures the surface of a painting like a rock through a window. A hallucinogenic cloud envelops the looming figure of a suicide bomber—or is it an angel, or an insect? Tree forms hold body parts—a strange fruit, a grotesque burl. These paintings are constructed out of layered oppositions: anxious, urgent pressures of the bitter and the sweet, the desolate and the comfortable, the dirty and the pure, the cosmic and the ordinary.
