Since 1964, the Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser has been building a highly personal body of work that is exceptionally difficult to categorize. With great individuality, he has successfully reconciled a number of apparent contradictions: figuration versus abstraction, the physicality of paint versus the ephemerality of the image, and exploration of the fundamentals of painting versus references to his personal life and surroundings.
Since 1980 De Keyser sets off resolutely down his own path and also marked the beginning of his steadily growing success.
