Actex concept is a know-how
we are not a group, we are duo: 1+1
Davy van Praet
In our experiment we share common aesthetics, but of course deeply subjective for each of us and this is namely what marks the poles in the diapason of Actex concept. Some of the works are on four hands, some of them each author create in his atelier.
The way of painting organic way
Despite the elaborate, complex working methods and its referential fashion, the individual works are simple and lucid in their appearance. Built up by repetitive monochrome lines.
the artist sees these works as “bridges”—as guidance to transgress barriers between contemporary life and ancient knowledge, between here and there, and – in their most dramatic form – between life and death.
Most striking of these works is the visual strategy off the artist has developed to disrupt what could be otherwise a monotonous pattern of repetition. Whether paint is layered on canvas in an act of spontaneity or violence, it opens up the surface of the canvasses or paper.
