Pieter Vermeersch

Born in Kortrijk, Belgium in 1973, Pieter Vermeersch studied at the Higher Institute for Visual Arts and has been the recipient of awards such as the Young Belgian Painters Award. His subtle gradient works on canvas fluctuate between figuration and abstraction in their navigation of time, substance, and space.

Through a meticulous and analytical process, Vermeersch takes photographic images of skies, rainbows, or backgrounds from Old Masters paintings and synthesizes the images into a fluid surface that hides the artistic gesture. Vermeersch’s paintings therefore liberate themselves from their subjective origins, enabling the viewer to thoroughly experience the painting’s colors and scope.
