Alain Biltereyst’s abstractions show the artist’s continued interest in the visual language of our urban environment. Fascinated by the vivid functionality of commercial signage — typography, logos, public advertising and commercial graphics — and their struggles for our attention, Biltereyst’s works are liberated from narrative constraint to form a purely visual and material experience. Working on almost object-like small panels, there is an attention to layering, surface, and particular colours and shapes. Often these paintings are shown in a series, as discrete units that build on each other.
