(Belgium, 1932 -)
Sylvain Cosijns started to live and open up aged 56, when he went to Jan Geldhof’s studio. During his life he accumulated a mass of sensations and experiences, endured and lived through but never communicated. Drawing and painting is his way of reaching out to life and other people.
The work of Sylvain Cosijns reflects the fragility of things more than heroism: it exudes tremendous purity: bare drawings with a hesitating stroke although maintained.
