The extensive exhibition Transparency of Time (2017) reveils how Dr. Hugo Heyrman explores the posibilities of painting and the adventure of pervious periods: A Transformative Gaze (2014), Another Reality (2012), Inside the image (2010), City Life & Body Language #2 (2008). This is his thirteenth exhibition in Galerie De Zwarte Panter, Antwerp, since 1975.
An imagined reality
The work of Dr. Hugo Heyrman is a continuous adventure into the power of painting and the resonance of the image. He questions the origins of perception and the way images shape our reality: a transformative balance of figuration and abstraction – with light as time, colour as space and transparency as form. Dr. Hugo paints shapes of time, images with a build-in attention for the factor time, the fourth dimension in art.
A timeless now
Like dreams, memories and moods, the paintings are about the image as event. The structuring of time, city life and body language, a spectrum of the human figure/condition in space-time: moving, sitting, standing, walking… every person in motion carries a private time. Touching on the role of time as the oldest riddle of life, the paintings offer a space for transparency, as a liberating value, a pictorial world, where past, present and future can come together in a timeless now.
