The Belgian artist Narcisse Tordoir (1954, Mechelen) constantly reminds us of the meaning of painting. Tordoir's work cannot be reduced to an unchanging and static imagery, as the artist is permanently searching for new sources and other possibilities. The recent work consists of (often large sized) compositions that feature various elements and characters. The work is usually based on photographs, drawings and self-made stagings in the artist's workshop. In his paintings, the artist uses silkscreen techniques, airbrush and drippings, which together create a complex visual play.
