"Resonance(s)" april - june 2014 

Born in 1955 in Belgium. Lives and works in Bruges and Zwevezele.

The work of Robert Devriendt consists of small paintings, usually shown in sequence, creating a story for the viewers who are stimulated to “fill in the blanks” between the images with their own imagination. The canvasses painted with a great attention on details, in a style reminding Primitive Flemish art, depict fragments of people, animals, landscapes or spaces. “They record staged and fictitious moments, which alternate between recognition and dreams, between allusions and absence, and between painting and pretense. Devriendt is a master of allusion, fictionalization and perhaps also deception,” explains curator Jan Hoet.
