Currently on view at Team Gallery, New York is a solo exhibition by Belgian artist Pieter Vermeersch. Working from positive and negative photographs of planes, often interior spaces or sky, Vermeersch employs gridding and color-mapping techniques associated with the likes of Gerhard Richter and Robert Bechtle. The resultant paintings are both photorealistic and abstract — exact painterly depictions of utterly ambiguous subjects. His exhibition at Team features large paintings on canvas and wall-murals. Vermeersch’s paintings are without focal points, symmetry, or balance, but are not characterized by this lack. Charged with an underlying sense of relational aesthetics, they strip painting down to its essential qualities of light, color and space, allowing the viewer’s act of looking to combine and elevate these elements.
Pieter Vermeersch is on view through April 27, 2014.
