An artist called Tom at The Latem Galler

❝ During 15 years I organized a yearly art exhibition at our home in Lochristi with the paintings of my husband Hans Kitslaar and sculptures of several artists. The success of these exhibitions made me dream of my own art gallery. On the 1st of August 2014 I had the opportunity to open The Latem Gallery and I was lucky to be followed by the artists that I exhibited in Lochristi: Patrick Villas, Christophe Charbonnel, Annette Defoort, …  In the meantime we enlarged the group with more artists with international reputation and whose artwork seduced us. Our device remains to offer a platform to artists who invest with all their heart into their creative work, and who are hungry to present always new and forceful creations and who consider artistic quality and craftsmanship as important characteristics of their expressive work. The artists which our gallery will represent will always be artists  which we admire for their talent and skill and for their courage to dedicate their skills to a live as an artist.

With this, we wish to invite every art lover to visit our gallery in Sint-Martens-Latem and to let you be seduced by beautiful creations! ❞

USING HIS FATHERS (GRABA’) RENOWNED TECHNIQUE, TOMs CYCLE ‘LISTEN TO YOUR EYES’ IS A FRAMEWORK OF REFLECTION ON HIS OWN LOOKING ON THE FORMS OF SIGHT THROUGH HIS EYES

 

IT IS AN ANALYSIS OF THE REPRESENTATION OF THE EYE AS A FEATURE OF OUR CULTURE, AS THE FAVORITE SYMBOL OF ‘SECOND SIGHT’

 

EYES WHO CAN CAPTURE SURROUNDINGS, SCRUTINIZE THE INTERIORITIES AND CONTRACTIONS OF THE SOUL, A SOURCE OF IMAGINATION

 

THE CYCLE SHOWS TOMs WAY OF SEEING AND SHOWING IMAGES AND REFLECTS TOMs VISUAL INTENTION AND THE OVERALL SENSATION OF OURSELVES

 

AS A BODY BETWEEN THE EYE AND THE SENSE OF TOUCH, IT IS ALSO THE BOUNDARY FROM WHICH TOM STARTS: HIS BEING IN THE WORLD

 

SIGHT IS NOT THE SAME AS VISION, AND THE EYE IS NOT THE SAME AS GAZE

 

THERE ARE ALWAYS OBJECTIVES IN LOOKING
