figurative paintings

My older, figurative paintings used to deal with the relationship between people and the world they live in. I mostly used documentary movie stills as a starting point for the image.

The Canvascollectie catalogue described it this way: “In his works, Bart Vinckier searches for the boundaries of individuality. He explores the influence of events and power stuctures on the (de)formation of the individual. He often finds a starting point in the moments where ‚big’ history crosses the lives of ordinary people.”

and there’s more more more…

What you see on these pages is just a selection. You’ll see work evolving on my Instagram page. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you saw something passing by you would like to see in real life.
