Belgian, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born c. 1955.

Painter. Figure compositions, still-lifes.

Pierre Alloueteau trained at the École des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and lives and works on a barge near the port of Antwerp. His goal was always to acquire the techniques of 15th-century Flemish painters. In his figure compositions, his starting point is Van Eyck, with a dash of Delvaux or Dalí. In his still-lifes, his style is more like that of the 17th-century Dutch painters such as W.C. Heda or Adriaen Coorte. He steadfastly ignores all contemporary art....

Alquin  

French, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born 16 July 1958, in Brussels.

Sculptor, draughtsman.

Alquin is the son of Pierre Alechinsky, and decided to make his own name. Even in his youth, he spent a great deal of time drawing. He worked either in pen or in hard pencil, using controlled strokes, with a hyperrealist minuteness, but also with a personal sensibility. His subjects were figures, or, more often than not, animals, such as leaping dogs. In his father's studio, he quietly, gradually acquired his artistic training, and finally chose to be a sculptor. His first works date from just before ...

German, 20th – 21st century, male.

Active in Cologne.

Born 1966, in Cologne.

Painter, sculptor, draughtsman, installation artist. Figures, portraits, scenes with figures.

Kai Althoff is a self-taught artist. He seeks a way to describe the world about him in the setting of its historical and religious references and to portray its characters, without putting anything into his painting other than this kind of nostalgic description. To achieve this, he borrows from different genres, depending on the often dramatic contents of his images. He employs a wide variety of themes, references and historical quotations, and shows a particular interest in the 1970s, medieval imagery and popular culture. He uses a number of different techniques, creating installations for which he writes accompanying texts, as well as writing scenarios for performances, videos and the cinema. His installations are made up of composite elements, such as piles of paintings or drawings covered in plastic. Painting is thus only one of many means of expression for him, and he experiments with many styles, alternating caricature with Romantic sensitivity, Expressionist distortions or even Abstraction. His palette is sombre, consisting mainly of variations on greys, browns and greens, accentuating the harrowing melancholy of a universe that is haunted by the constant resurgence of history. He sometimes treats his canvases with resins that make the paint blister in places and seem to threaten its preservation. He is also a musician....
