Baronian is pleased to be hosting Home, a second solo exhibition with new works by Alain Biltereyst. Alain Biltereyst’s 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. Fragments of the modern world appear. As shapes are shifted and turned and twisted, three-dimensional constructions may emerge as well. Abstract forms subtly reveal a house. It took shape during times of forced home confinement. Seemingly unintentional, a roof is formed, creating a safe space. What does home mean? Is it concrete or is it a concept? These are the questions and thoughts which informed the title for this exhibition, which Biltereyst is happy to be organising in his home city of Brussels.
