An Interview with David Deweerdt.
Who and where are you from?
I am a Belgian painter born in Brussels. I chose for a figurative approach of the human body. I’m feeling close to an artistic painting movement called ‘figuration critique’.
How you got into this?
Naturally. I would even say instinctively. Representing body and mind is simply part of me.
What is your driving force?
The strength of my work is situated in the treatment of the materials that compose the inner side of the bodies I’m representing. My paintings represent psychologic pain.
What kind of work you do and why?
My work is clearly expressionist. It shows through the bodies, the psychologic torments of our minds. I have worked since a long time with people with a mental disease and I want our society to have another regard on those mentally disturbed beings.
Tell us more about your thought process.
I start working on living models. My work is first technical based on preliminar drawings. Later on, I choose materials and colours. I’m always attentive to details and precision.
