Gallery S&H DE BUCK is pleased to announce”50 branches” and”Mongolia-a different view” an exhibition of new photographs by Koen Blanckaert .

…His work exudes a non-finito quality. Like he finished paintings that Ensor signed with’pas fini’ , it refers to the changeability of life.
Such slightly melancholical vitalism relates to the emotions the artist experiences when trying to capture the living essence but failing to grasp it together. ..

Quoted from  Stef Van Bellingen.

…Koen Blanckaert’s photographs record a moment of movement and rhythm of life.The shifting mysteries are being unfolded in common places and moments.
These pictures give materiality to the subjects’ implicit spirit.Koen Blanckaert feeds images to the viewer, in full openness, without dogma, without pretension.
He proffers the fundamentals of the art of photography in such a way that each of them communicates with our curiosity, our desire and our recognition…

Quoted from Johan Swinnen.
