SAO PAULO.- Galeria Jaqueline Martins announced the representation of Belgian artist Jan De Maesschalck. A solo exhibition of new works by De Maesschalck will be opening at our Brussels gallery in February 8th 2024.

Composing a kind of ambiguity of meanings, Jan De Maesschalck paintings are characterized by their enigmatic seductive and evocative notions, the works invite the viewers to embark on a journey of interpretation.

The atmosphere in Jan De Maesschalck paintings is meticulously crafted through masterful brush strokes, an alluring color palette, and a thoughtful composition, resulting in paintings that carry a subtle weight and allow the viewer to savor the profound sense of melancholy. (Rob Schoonen)

Jan De Maesschalck, born in 1958 in Sint-Gillis-Waas (BE), lives and works in Stekene (BE).

Jan De Maesschalck observes, selects, interprets and fantasizes to create his own paintings. The figures and settings displayed in Jan’s works are fragments taken from art history, photographs, magazines and his own personal life.

His background as a draughtsman for newspapers and art magazines brings a unique set of influences to his artistic practice, highlighting his dynamic compositions, observational skills, versatility in different mediums, social commentary and precision to detail.

De Maesschalck’s fascination with light, shadow, and the Old Masters, in addition to his meticulous eyes, sets the tone for his intimate paintings. Charged with an alluring color palette and bold content, his paintings are enigmatic, seductive and evocative, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of interpretation.

His works bring a contemporary perspective to the rich artistic heritage of Belgium painting, creating captivating works that resonate with both local traditions and global influences.

De Maesschalck’s works have been shown in exhibitions at Museu Berardo in Lisbon, Musée d’Art Contemporain in Marseilles, Phoenix Art Museum in Phoenix, Mu.ZEE in Ostend, Museum Dr Guislain in Ghent, De Warande in Turnhout, Museum of Ixelles and Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. His work are part of private and institutional collections such as MOCA in Los Angeles, Museum Dr Guislain in Ghent, and Mu.ZEE in Ostend amongst others.
