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.”
