Mil Ceulemans / Eugène Leroy

Eugène Leroy
Nature morte au pot
ca. 1955
oil on canvas

I chose a work by Eugène Leroy. His quest for color and matter is still very relevant to me (as with a Frank Auerbach or Philip Guston). They are loners who made unique statements. Rather than starting from concepts they started from an inner necessity and a large sense of plasticity.
Of course everything I say is just projection, but you almost feel the loneliness of the painter in front of his canvas. A human whose efforts are ultimately futile but who -despite everything- still makes something thoroughly essential.
