Walden & other suspicions
Willem Elias Isabelle De Baets Hans Theys
Studio Luc Derycke
"Walden & other suspisions" presents Clarysse’s artistic output of the past seven years, in which concepts of identity construction, communication and non-communication are key, along with the drives and aspirations of the condition humaine. Clarysse’s figurative paintings display a layered, hybrid imagery that questions and researches the ambiguity proper to human nature. His paintings tease and confuse, destabilize well-known images and themes, giving them power and force. Thus an oeuvre is created that is both playful and serious, clear and equivocal, subdued and intense.
