The exhibition Dr. Hugo Heyrman / The Double Life of Images (2019) includes more than 50 works. Since the 1960s, he has developed as one of the most important painters of his generation. In essence, his work is about the mysterious double life of images — it opens up a transitional space between reality, memory and imagination. His commitment to the world, as a pictorial reality, touches us a place outside space and time — in the eye of the ‘maelstrom’, surrounded by a changing ‘zeitgeist’.
Painter of postmodern life
Dr. Hugo Heyrman’s enigmatic paintings are characterised by a pictorial intensity and a resonance of the images. As a painter of ‘atmospheres of change’ his art opens a transitional space between reality, memory and imagination. Via the mysterious double life of images we enter a dimension of an inner sense of time — where a gaze becomes a private dream.
