RINUS VAN DE VELDE SALEROOM

As an artist working across a variety of media, Rinus Van de Velde has made a career of exposing the limits and potentials of art’s seeming unreality. His work suggests that the fictitiousness of art relates to its distance from the particulars of everyday life. But if art is something we can only experience at select—one might even say privileged—moments, viewers still have to account for the living, breathing personalities who give shape to a work. Although centuries of art criticism have claimed that art should aspire to disinterested formalism, Van de Velde foregrounds the strange identity of an artist with his art. The fact that he often uses an alter ego to sign off on his works makes the interrelationship between art and artist all the more apparent—as well as wryly conspiratorial.

Large-format charcoal drawings are often the medium of choice for Rinus Van de Velde (*1983 in Leuven, Belgium). Many times, he appears as the protagonist in his works: be it as an artistic alter ego or after the role model of existing persons; Van de Velde moulds characters who travel, explore, and search – for their own self, a new inspiration, but sometimes just for the next gas station and a pack of cigarettes. Van de Velde already attained international success and is long since a star of the Belgian art scene. He refers to his artistic work as a whole, long story.
