Stan Van Steendam Bruselas, Bélgica,

The work of Belgian artist Stan Van Steendam challenges our ideas of tradition and modernity. His work reflects the intimacy that exists between the artist and his craft, his materials and the emotions and sensations that are embodied in his thoughtful creations: sculptural objects and large-scale monochromatic pictorial explorations.
His practice aims to deconstruct the materiality of painting, which he explores through an extensive layering process of raw pigments, plaster and other materials such as ash, earth and dust. Keen to be close to his materials and to control their traces and movements, Van Steendam works primarily with his hands, treating the material in a sculptural manner, questioning notions of the boundaries of painting and sculpture.
Van Steendam, who lives and works between Brussels and Portugal, is motivated by classical painting and the work of other artists but also by the places where he chooses to reside and by nature.
