About

Denis De Mot - Original Painting Dimensions:75 × 71 cm Medium: Mixed Media, Acrylic, Gouache, Synthetic Panel Denis De Mot (1955) is a Belgian painter who began painting professionally in 1996. Computer scientist, he changes course mid-life and, for nearly twenty-five years, has devoted himself entirely to painting. He lives and works in Gesves (Belgium). He exhibits regularly and finds his works with collectors in Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the United States. The traces of time constitute the vocabulary of the painter : a network of cracks, scratches, rusty prints cover a meticulous succession of layers. This is the technique elaborated by Denis De Mot. The artist superimposes layers of gouache and acrylic on synthetic boards, sometimes more than twenty of them, to which he sometimes returns in the manner of an archaeologist, scratching the surface to reveal one or another of the previous layers. In the end, the work brings up ancient states of being, as though they had crossed through the ages. As the painter says, “I construct time”. Time : this is surely the key to this work that speaks to our memory of the past. There is no precise image represented in order to dictate a particular feeling. Rather, the many traces, even the lines of paint that the artist puts on his compositions, seem to function like guides in the meanderings of our personal memory, in the manner of a mental topography. Here we call up tenuous, sensory memories. Nothing precise, but diffuse feelings. In refusing figurative representation, the work opens to the imaginary. In the arena whose walls have been drawn by Denis De Mot, it is the spectator who is in the centre of the space, confronted by his memories. Far from the present-day primacy of the “all new”, Denis De Mot’s painting, between wear and cracks, awakens us to a poetics of the passage of time. It connects time’s vestiges, signs and shadows, slight things, but essential, and the visitor slips off into the past, away from truths too raw and certainties too absolute.
