(Belgium, 1961 – 2015)
The graphic work of Paul Blockx immerse the spectator into a world of pain. The artist imposes us, in a strong way and frankly, the hell of his life, the psychic suffering which he is subjected for several years. For him, as for many artists, creation means a release, a way of shouting his pain and of transcending it. He offers us a strong and authentic work which is a reflection of the author’s soul and which contains a symbolic part of his intimate story. Sometimes shocked, sometimes moved, sometimes upset by the message of this self-portrait, no visitor can remain uncaring in front of this work-mirror.
