Jan De Lauré

Materials: oil on paper

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp / Collection Flemish Community (Inv. no. BK7833_M528).

Jan De Lauré paints to show fragments of the world that might otherwise go unnoticed by the viewer. The work Untitled is a 'fossilised', timeless image. The grand emotions are absent from this painting; it mainly evokes an introverted, melancholic atmosphere. The figures are portrayed isolated from the world, which lend a sinister sensation to his works. As can be seen in this girl, who one would expect to be holding a doll, rather than a baby. The viewers have to provide their own interpretation.
