Patrick Vanden Eynde b. 1964


Since the 1990s, the painter has been working on an oeuvre that shows not only great thematic variety and range, but also enormous skill and material and textural precision. 

Patrick Vanden Eynde (°1964) is a Belgian artist with a very extensive painting practice. Since the 1990s, the painter has been working on an oeuvre that shows not only great thematic variety and range, but also enormous skill and material and textural precision. Vanden Eynde combines a hyper-precise, figurative rendering with an extremely successful painting technique that manages to draw attention. His figurative representations have changed somewhat over the years, yet the painter's themes are still recognisable. Whereas his earlier works are a depiction of isolated objects in an undefined space, the later ones can better be described as enlargements of an object. Monochrome backgrounds are replaced by compositions of abstract patterns, no longer knowing what was originally depicted. With his later works Vanden Eynde emphasises the tactility that the art of painting has to offer.
