Opening Sunday 13 November 2pm - 6pm.
Introduction at 3.30pm by Mr Ernest Van Buynder, honorary president MuHKA.
Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery is presenting painter and sculptor Gilbert Decock (1928-2007), one of the prominent figures within Belgian post-war geometric abstraction and winner of the European Prize for Painting in 1966. With a very limited number of basic geometric forms, Gilbert Decock created an unusually rich and varied oeuvre over the course of forty-five years. Central to his work are circle and square, where the circle represented infinity (the divine) and the square the boundary (the earthly). He was one of the most outspoken defenders of pure hard abstraction in Belgium. Callewaert Vanlangendonck Gallery is showing work on canvas, paper and panel as well as some sculptures, from the late 1950s on.
