Jan Vanriet

Ex Voto

This large pictural autobiography includes sacred objects, portraits, tributes and abstract spin-offs: a challenging mixture of melancholy and joy of life. ‘Jan Vanriet is a painter who has a habit of withholding information. Hence his fondness for isolated or disconnected figures, for fragmentary details, floated in areas of variously inflected emptiness; hence his tendency to paint pictures that look as though they might have a story to tell, while never fully disclosing it.’ (Andrew Graham-Dixon)

In addition to the solo exhibition of recent paintings by Jan Vanriet, the gallery presents a book edition with texts by Eric Rinckhout and Vanriet.
