Johan Tahon


Sculpture, 155 x 120 x 125 cm.
Materials: Plaster, clay

Collection: Collectie M HKA, Antwerpen, Collectie Vlaamse Gemeenschap (Inv. no. UFOTAHON2).

White is the colour of peace, of stillness, but may perhaps also signify the resignation evident in Johan Tahon's oeuvre. In a way, his images are never finished and most definitely never achieve perfection. They sum up the tragic beauty of existence, the realisation that there is always something missing, that the search is an endless one, and that the universe conceals so much that only the futility of human existence remains.
