They breathe a thoughtful poetry, the paintings of Edwin Smet (1972). Their colours are delicate, but also extremely explosive at times. Painted with acrylic paint, which sometimes takes over with refined force, escaping from the restraint of the painter’s hand. Mundane tape, costing next to nothing, makes a priceless contribution to the end result.
We see trees. Never alone, always in the company of others. And there is often also an impression of a marshy mire in the paintings. But are they really landscapes? To what extent do these works have a story to tell? Why do we never see people? Did they all have to rush away in a hurry? And what are we to make of titles like On earth we are briefly gorgeous and Forêt Zweig?
In this book, visual artist Edwin Smet and publicist Kees Verbeek reflect on these and other questions. The book contains more than 130 illustrations, a selection of works from 2016 to 2021,accompanied by a thought-provoking commentary in English and Dutch.
