An Interview with Koen Delaere

October 16, 2015 - Steven Cox, Hunted Projects

"My main focus is on this series I call beach paintings. In this series I use a heavy relief on which to paint. The relief functions as a grid. The painting itself is really physical. In these works I use the idea of the grid both as a vehicle for subjectivity as well as a constraint for a really impulsive performative way of painting. Thus the relief functions as a way to capture the act of painting, almost as a photographic object or a performance document."

Koen Delaere's Approach to Painting

December 24, 2013 - Dust Magazine

"Koen Delaere's approach to painting comes within reach of the performative moment of music."

Koen Delaere at Instituto Buena Bista

October 25, 2010 - Instituto Buena Bista

"During the course of his stay at the IBB artist Koen Delaere also did a project with the IBB students. They were to make a cooperative mural on the walls of the institute. Here they were allowed to use non conventional techniques like applying paint using random objects or body parts of the painter. They were also to experiment with different paces of working. Eventually they also had to experiment with their pace, colors and learning to work abstractly instead of the figurative they have been used to up until this point."
