Thomas Maes, Brasschaat
Member Since October 2012
Artist Statement Thomas Maes' works exhibit a rare virtuosity which is instantly striking. An expert colorist, the artist's paintings evoke the abstract canvases of Joan Mir¨® as well as turn of the century Symbolism and even Surrealism. His images are an amalgamation of the natural world with an architectural bent, in which geometric structures connect with amorphous forms. His arrangements are controlled, yet the elements float with a joyous and invigorating freedom. His painstaking technique of preparing his design for weeks and even months before he places oil on canvas is evident in his superb compositions. Maes' oeuvre is wonderfully reminiscent of many movements in the visual arts, while resonating with musical harmony.

His works are drawing the attention of international collectors, and his designs will shortly appear in a book on modern sculpture. The artist is influenced by a number of fields, including design, technology, architecture, and archaeology, as well as art history. With such innovation evident in his work, Maes is destined to take the art world by storm.
