Solo show Laurenz Coninx

From 25/11/2021 to 12/12/2021

In the autumn it will be Laurenz Coninx's turn, he will take over the gallery from November 25 to December 12 with his solo 'Endless Summer'. BIO: Laurenz Coninx, painter, born in Wilrijk in 1986, studied visual arts at Sint-Lucas Brussels and grew up in and around Mechelen. Mainly focused on skateboarding and travel, Laurenz only rediscovered his passion for drawing and painting in his late twenties. Laurenz's first works were mainly black and white portraits in acrylic paint, later evolving into realistic scenes with the addition of a single color in areas or splashes. Quenching his thirst for more depth and color, Laurenz introduced oil paint and pastel as a new medium in his work in early 2019. This resulted in an explosion of color on a background of natural linen canvas. His images, based on photographs taken by himself, translate to the canvas with an intense focus on composition in a subtle language inspired by the memory and feeling of that moment. Searching for the perfect balance between reality and impression, Laurenz has since evolved into a unique personal style, leaving specific spots on the canvas untouched and exposing the natural linen canvas to the eye. His latest work shows interesting and beautiful, simple moments in an abundance of color, giving the viewer the opportunity to glimpse the artist's daily life. The most important thing for Laurenz is to be happy with his work and to create lasting moments that stimulate the development of his personal style.
