An amply illustrated examination of Vincent Geyskens’ work exploring of the position of painting in contemporary society

Vincent Geyskens examines the position of painting in contemporary society, engaging with abstraction, figuration and a variety of media and styles as the artist probes their possibilities and limits. Complemented by a number of older reference works, this book zooms in on Geyskens’ practical work over the past ten years to bring together various series in free‑ranging connection with one another. It places the spotlight on the breadth of his experience and gathers together the diverse series and types of work produced over the course of his oeuvre. The links forged between the various approaches he uses lends voice to Geyskens’ quest as a painter exploring the status of the image and visual representation in the present day. His painting is a way of turning thoughts into something tangible, translating them into substance in this amply illustrated publication.

Dominic van den Boogerd is an art critic and Head of Research and Education at De Ateliers, Amsterdam, where he was director from 1995 to 2018.
