“Bar at Leuven – uk” is a contemporary painting by the artist Duytter.
THE PHOTOGRAPHIC AESTHETIC
In his paintings as well as in his washes, Duytter’s work is reminiscent of the photographic aesthetic. One can observe the framing, the perspective, the composition, the light and its localised flashes, but also the banality of an interior scene taken ‘on the spot’ and fixed for eternity.
Enjoy the intimate, familiar and warm atmosphere of this café. The shades of wood, the deep colours and the soft lighting contrast with the winter whiteness that freezes the street and the leafless trees.
The multiple inspirations of the painter can be identified in “Bar at Leuven – uk”.
The taste for architecture can be seen in the compositional work, the perspective, the oblique line of the bar which effectively animates the verticals and horizontals.
Finally, we can perceive his admiration for Edward Hopper and his suspended moments, his cinematographic tension.Discover the artist
