Pieter Vermeersch is not an abstract painter as such but rather an image maker; those mental images he finds in reality by photographic means. There is no such thing as pure abstraction. Everything is connected to some part of reality. The image of different degrees of luminosity or the image of the colour of the rainbow’s prism for instance, they fascinate Pieter Vermeersch by their capacity to represent a recognisable image, both identifiable and abstract, while emphasizing the process of image apparition, this "meta-image" in which time progression and space definition take place.'

At first I was speaking with typical colorful tropical climate, then plunged into the chaos of not knowing where to go, I went into the world of gray, and from this base have been shaping and warmth to the colors and shapes now teach." - Alexandre Monntoya  photo mis-manana_zps7e7c208d.jpg  photo alexandremonntoya67_zpsd4c47653.jpg
