Filip Desmet, Kruishoutem, Belgium
"My relationship with nature has always been intense. I have always been inspired by plants and trees and the cyclic processes of birth and germination, growth, bloom and finally, death and decay. I am interested in light and color above all else in my painting, which has been deepened through years of direct experience with the natural world. While painting, I am always looking for that moment of perfect meeting, or understanding, in the natural world - that moment which is timeless. This moment can generate new possibilities for relationships in both painter and spectator.
