The work of Brussels-based artist Angel Vergara (°1958, Spain) is a continued research into the aesthetical and ethical power of the image. Through mediation and transformation of existing images by means of performance, video, installation and painting, Vergara questions the way images shape our reality.

In his recent painted films, Angel Vergara links audiovisual to painting, putting the act of painting at the heart of his own pictorial production. The exhibition From Scene to Scene in the summer of 2017 at Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels presented five large-format “painted films”, echoing five lectures of poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire in which he defended his views on modernity.
