Still life like Landscapes
Landscapes like Still life

Nothing is what it seems. This title may apply to almost all the works of Kris Duys. What one perceives at first glance are still lives or landscapes.

 Kris Duys visual artist, born in Lier (Be) lives and works in Lier, Belgium.
 With a renewed look the still lives turn into landscapes and vice versa. These in turn, seem to dissolve into shadows and abstract forms that point out to a vague remembrance of a vase or a building.

Within the same image work can appear flat or three dimensional and the perspective can change. Boundaries between abstraction and figuration are constantly broken and stretched. For Kris Duys there is little difference between figuration and abstraction. These differences exist only in the mind of the viewer. Reason enough for the artist to create a thoughtful and accurate play. On show at Sea’s Project Space Tilburg is a selection of 21 of his recent works.
