   Charlie De Voet

"Much in the same way as with the swirling ocean, we’re struck by the infinite vastness of the monochrome paintings by Charlie De Voet. Degrades fading from light to dark, painted wet to wet in oil paint, are the result of a labour-intensive and, in the words of the artist, "near meditative process". His deep pools mirror the impotence of the speechless human being: "The frame of a painting allows me to make an attempt at true communication within this boundary". His paintings are of an overwhelming simplicity, as a counterweight to a world in which the artist experiences too many stimuli. Letting go is not unimportant for the painter of mental landscapes, rooted in matter. Recently the focus in his work evolved to actually handle the paint rather as a matter instead of a colour and how it responds as an excessive multi layering. In fact, by scraping off the layers of paint and thus freeing them of their original carrier, he is pushing the conventional bounderies of two-dimensional painting, rendering them into three-dimensional paint things." (Roxane Bayens)
