Biography

Tim Volckaert is steadily creating a coherent oeuvre. His work expresses his thinking in an organic way. It translates a world vision where duality - which characterizes and dominates the history of Western thought – is central. In his drawings, sculptures and actions the image of ‘the landscape’ is often the starting point. The landscape in the qualifiaction of ‘world space’ that serves as a backdrop to comment on the struggle of man with his environment. A critical reflection which is constantly fed by current affairs, environmental problems etc. The poetic work of Tim Volckaert articulates therefore also a sharp, accurate vision that is rooted in everyday reality, placed in a historical perspective.
