LESS = MORE
How can that be? Well, look at the painting. What do you see more? The background? Yes, indeed. And because of that you see more of the object too. Funny, no? Take a look again, I'm not kidding... Why is that? Because of the solid central composition of the object that at the same time acts as the subject of the painting. This object/subject is reduced to its most essential form by the background, which is nothing more than an autonomous empty space. It will speak for itself. The Lonely Subjects of Antoon Verbeeck
