“It seems as if numerous mistakes have seeped into the painting; irregularities, signs of disease, abnormalities and deviant zones that upset and disturb the aesthetic serenity. The painting evokes an imperfection that can not be located content wise, it remains purely material. The composition is neither aimed at narrative, nor a content-related transfer of knowledge. The painting of Dirk Vander Eecken is therefore a delineated pictorial field on which a controlled experiment ‘takes place’.” ( Luk Lambrecht in Dirk Vander Eecken, an edition of MER. Paper Kunsthalle (2010).
