Biography

Painter Stef Driesen makes haunting images that fuse abstract, evocative shapes with brooding color. The paintings—both figurative and landscape—have a mysterious, erotically charged laziness that is reinforced by Driesen’s light application of paint. In many, the limited palette, which favors pinks and mauves, recalls the work of Luc Tuymans and Rezi van Lankveld. Whether painting the figure or the landscape, Driesen’s imagery is surreal and dreamlike; the organic forms seem to become bodies, landscapes and monuments, all at once.
