Johan GEENENS

(Belgium, 1970-)

Johan Geenens has been attending the De Zandberg workshops in Harelbeke since 1992. Starting off with engraving and linocut, his artistic practices expanded into abstract painting and drawing. His “Nogeenkasteel” series (“One more castle”) is composed of entangled lines transformed into distinct, small spaces and interweaved areas. They all take part in a subtle mosaic of colors and forms, at times alternating with wider spaces where his brash strokes (if it is about painting) OR drawing line (if it is about drawing) become freer and less systematic. These contrasts in styles and density invite the viewer to appreciate in each one of the elements of this ensemble its own distinct features.
