LOGIC OF PASSION IN THE WORK OF LUC STANDAERTposted by luc standaert
by John Austin Luc Standaert’s paintings come out at you, frenzied. They pummel you, cajole you, and over time something haunting, even unsettling permeates the work. This is the result of the artist’s highly sophisticated pictorial intelligence, which recognizes the value of indicating spatio-temporal involution. (…) The artist is compelled by the presence of emerging energy; his intention is to bring into visual play visual analogies that refer to the affects of causality, as well as to the condition of dependence / interdependence / independence and to human agency itself. (...) John Austin is a Manhattan based art critic and writer. Published in "Paintings", an Artifact publication.
