MICHEL FRÈRE

Michel Frère
Michel Frère

Michel Frère is an expressionist materialist painter born in Brussels in 1961. He studied at the National School of Visual Arts in La Cambre in Brussels, focusing on painting, pastel, drawing, sculpture and photography.

He quotes his great references as Nicolas Poussin, James Ensor, and the landscapes of Gustave Courbet. But above all he drew his inspiration from the work of Eugene Leroy. He has exhibit in Brussels, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Munich, Los Angeles and Athens. In the 1990s, he spent time between Brussels and New York - Michel Frère died tragically, aged 38 in 1999.

From these thick, moving textures, without beginning or end, nature seems to arise to die. They constitute, at the meeting point of physics and metaphysics, of science and imagination, a synthesis and an overcoming of modern painting.
