Biography and career

Denis De Mot

Denis De Mot’s paintings on pvc panel demonstrate an innate sense of harmony and elegance. In itself his work is in no way revolutionary; rather, it radiates a meditative calm. 

Of course, we would not have been able to look at these paintings with such fascination if there were not a little unruliness here and there to make the painted surface more interesting. Scratches, irregularities, peeling… 

It is as if the works on display are isolated fragments of a greater reality. The beauty of the rugged surface goes hand in hand with chromatic subtlety.

Denis De Mot faces and confronts in his own way, which is one of great patience. He admits to being slow; I would rather say wise, for this artist uses time passing like a data-base for never-finished research.

On his neutral PVC boards, with discreetly presented colours, he connects time’s vestiges, signs and shadows, slight things, but essential, and the visitor slips off into the past.
