Paul Gees (BE)

Born 1949, Aalst, Belgium
Lives and works in Schoonaarde, Belgium

Paul Gees studied from 1969 to 1973 at the St. Luke Brussels College. From 1980 to 1992 he was a professor of interior design architect at the Sint-Lucas Higher Institute of Interior and Construction. Since 1992 he has worked as a lecturer at the Hoger Architectuur Instituut Sint-Lucas Gent-Brussels. He participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions. Some of his works are included in public collections. His inspiration sources include Richard Serra and Carl Andre.

For three decades his sculpture has taken a special place in the Belgian art scene. Since 1980, his work explores the relationship of nature culture. His sculptures come down to thoughtful composite compositions that balance the balance, tension and refined sense of relationships. In addition, the well-considered use of wood, metal and rock strongly increases. Metal has a constructive and space-descriptive meaning, well-dimensioned wood forms a dynamic component and unprocessed stone creates natural mass. From the confrontation between these traditional materials, stressful contradictions arise in a fragile balance.
