ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: STIJN COLE

Sunset / Sunset

This year, the Fine Arts Museum (MSK) hosted work by Stijn Cole (°1978 Ghent). This young Ghent artist regularly makes reference to the MSK in his work, and was given the opportunity to interact in several rooms of the MSK with the other artists in the Museum's collection.

The artist uses diverse media: video, sculpture, scale models, installations, paintings, graphic works and mixed media. Concerning content, however, his production shows a strong coherence. The observation of his surroundings is abstracted, lending his work a universal and conceptual value. The relationship between observer, work of art and surroundings plays an important part, each time in a different way.
