Who am I
Paul De Bruyne was born 11 june 1953 as second child in a family of 8 children. He’s a civil engineer by profession and has had an active career in several big and small companies. Paul is married and father of 2 sons.
His beautifully colored abstract paintings, sizes 100x100 cm and bigger are made with acryl and mixed media, finished with resin.
He is unique in the way he arranges lighting of a painting. The lighting comes from within not from the outside. When the night falls, the painting alights, when the morning comes the painting goes to sleep.
Paul’s paintings are spontaneous creations and always in balance. He is especially skilled in combining the right colors to get an intriguing and harmonious painting.
"When I paint, I’m working out my own life. Every painting is a piece of my life. But as far as the people who see my paintings? I only paint mirrors."
Paul's works are recognizable by:
1. "Red Signature Branding"
Every painting has a red border, so you don't need a frame to display it.
2. "Light from Within"
Traditionally we lighten paintings with spots. We give light to the painting (front light).
What happens when we turn this around?
If we let the painting give light to the surroundings (back light) we have a totally different experience.
When we put led lights in the frame, behind the canvas, we suddenly get much more information from the painting.
We can see more details and the colors are much more bright. It is as if we now have a glass window.
We see the strokes and how the painting evolved.
Strange effects seem to occur. With front light we see yellow with back light we see green, .... because there is blue paint behind.
We also get a second painting since we can use a timer and so during the day we have the painting with front light, during the night we have the one with back light.
