Koen Delaere
*1970 in Brugges Belgium, lives and works in Tilburg in the Netherlands.

The works of Koen Delaere are abstract, highly structured mixed-media paintings on canvas that are the result of a physical and energetic interaction with the material and color matter. “His approach to painting comes within the reach of the performative moment of music. As in musical productions, it is in his works that one perceives a live performance – a spontaneity that is reflected throughout a concert. There is a randomness, an improvisation and a controlled chaos. We find traces of these elements in his paintings, that live on an extension of the present.” (Lorenzo Benedetti: Chromatic Explosions)
