Michael Van den Abeele
Exhibition, M Museum Leuven, Belgium, until 4 October
Michael Van den Abeele experiments with optical effects, texture, the use of colour, and various materials. This exploration treats specific themes: from science fiction to exoticism and from palaeontology to camouflage. In his abstract works – often reproductions of digital compositions – Van den Abeele pursues this experiment further. In a new series of paintings, he depicts dinosaurs and landscapes in outer space. At M, he presents this series in conjunction with an animated film and some earlier works, in the form of a spatial installation.
