Alain Biltereyst

Untitled / A-645-3

Alain Biltereyst’s (b. 1965, lives and works in Brussels) abstractions show the artist’s continued interest in the visual language of our urban environment. Fascinated by the vivid functionality of commercial signage — typography, logos, commercial graphics — and their struggle for our attention, Biltereyst’s works are liberated from narrative constraint to form a purely visual and material experience. Biltereyst succeeds in referring to earlier historical abstractions and at the same time in cataloguing his world. He brings abstractions from ordinary life, which were once forms developed years ago, full circle from their use in pop culture. His abstract shapes and colors are not, however, geometrical utopias devoid of meaning. They are embedded in a context. As shapes are shifted and turned and twisted, three-dimensional constructions may emerge as well.
