Jørgen Missotten
“He challenges in his unique way the tension between the functional design object and non-functional art. Because of his love and attention for matter, he creates synergies between distinct types of objects that meet each other in a contemporary sculptural language of shapes.” S. Vanderstichelen Jørgen’s simple approach to marble as a stone sculptor translated into works on canvas. He uses a simple direct technique by applying acrylics with a single stroke without using a brush on the canvas. With a continious movement he leaves traces of thin layers of paint which creates a remarkable 3D effect. Jørgen has worked as sculptor and painter for over 20 years and has experience in many disciplines. His background as a graphic designer influenced his work, which is highlighted by his use of clear defined and stylized shapes. Jorgen is based in Antwerp, Belgium and in Carrara, Italy.
