Axel Vervoordt Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition devoted to Jef Verheyen, featuring previously unseen works from the artist’s estate that will be shown in public for the first time. The exhibition focuses on key paintings from the 1970s and 80s. Colours represent Jef Verheyen’s interpretation of the world and the ways in which we perceive nature and eternality. He believed our perception of the world has nothing to do with the factual depiction of the natural landscape. He employed colour and light to transcend the physical human experience. His work makes us experience light and dark, depth and surface, two-dimensionality and non-dimensionality.
