Frank Knockaert

Meer over Frank Knockaert

Frank was self-taught for many years, but is now starting his specialization degree in painting at the Sint-Lucas Academy in Ghent. He usually works with oil paint, but he also makes smaller and larger works with colored pencil and acrylic. He combines color with the prepared structure of a carrier into (minimalist) work that floats on a feeling, an atmosphere, a memory (à la recherche du temps perdu, as he himself says). The deep and rich (mixed) colors in different layers, the texture and the relief invite you to take a closer look and almost feel your work. Although sometimes abstract, his works often attempt to communicate a story and/or involvement with the world.
