Jeroen Boute en Philippe Robeyns

Can we reveal a similarity from the grotesque portrait gallery of Philippe Robeyns and the eclectic painterly practice of Jeroen Boute? Both such different forms of expression that the analogy dissipates. Even if the plastic acts are very diverse, there are components that present themselves as a common thread: the profound knowledge of the painterly tradition, motivated by art-historical and cultural pictorial references and the endless kneading to the essence with a completely idiosyncratic and obsessive character. Jeroen and Philippe initiate a dialogue referring to the inherently plastic qualities of painting.
