Overview

"My art is about love in the broadest sense of the word."

The intricate nature of Belgium-born artist Wim Ricourt’s oeuvre stems from the details he finds in everyday life where everything and anything can and will be subject to boundless creation, part Ricourt’s own form of poetry. Ricourt’s love for the poetic shows in the composition of his work as carried on by the cadence of lyric driven by the spontaneity and intention of a poetic phrase.

 

Using the unconventional combination of water-based paint (Acrylic-Gouache and Aquarelle) and oil paint, Ricourt plays with the discrepancy between the two. This tension of contrast rooted in the materiality of his canvas is established on the shimmering aluminium that makes the surface: a cold material upon which Ricourt breathes warmth found in the balance of seeming opposites. From a distance his images seem to be totally clear, but one feels irresistibly drawn closer to the canvas and finds themselves immersed in a dynamic collage.

 

Though landscapes of nature are essential to his work with sceneries of flowers, ponds, and trees flourishing in depths and proportions, Ricourt sees the themes of attraction and abandon as central to his creations. This movement of a constant push and pull is what he deems inherent to love in flux; love in the greatest sense, filled with awe-inspiring contradictions.
