Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7735_M484).
In his work Vaast Colson concentrates on how an image comes into being, the methods involved in visual language. The objects, materials, images, textures, colours, sounds and spaces that he makes use of, must serve the final art work. He fits his images like precise parts of a puzzle. For Colson, his sculptures are comparable to guitar-riffs: if they achieve their effect, they’re fine. He does not start from the premise of having to express specific emotions or subjects. Rather, it’s about having the work evoke thoughts and feelings. To continue the musical allusion, Colson cuts samples out of the world and mixes his own image-compositions with them.
