Tom Andries

Tom Andries

Born: 1969

Hometown: Rotselaar

Based in: Belgium

About the artist:
Tom Andries (b. Leuven 1969) is a Belgian Multidisciplinary Designer and Contemporary Artist. In his conceptually driven art he abstracts the typographic form, leaving behind pure shapes which are painted directly onto canvas. Fascinated by minimalism, Tom uncovers the essence (what is essential and what is not) leaving the unnecessary behind. He is inspired by mid-century design and architecture and early modernist painting. His work reflects an ongoing quest for the pure, expressive painted gesture; albeit within a structured frame. Mostly monochromatic, the works convey an extraordinary sense of natural spontaneity.

About his work:
The main body of his work is a series of exquisite abstracts painted directly onto canvas. He uses the full area, covering the surface from edge-to-edge with complex typographic iterations and abstractions. Starting with a fixed grid, he explores in detail high-contrast minimalistic abstraction tempered with form and shape. Often working in black on white, he optically and purposefully uses curve-linear and angular line composition to add tangible depth to a flat surface. Using a base mix of acrylic, Indian ink and carbon black, he has developed his own paint medium, which when applied to a rough, structured material or a smooth, light surface gives the work a surprising amount of depth.
