Portraits by Kris Coolens
Kris Coolens is a Belgian artist who currently lives and works in Ghent. His main genre is portraits and he paints it wonderfully. “The collective evaporates and the residue is my only interest: the individual.” Coolens explains. “The subjects in my paintings represent the objective reality of the individual in its aura of daily conflicts and possible complexes. Individuality doesn’t equal selfishness, it is solitary but doesn’t equal loneliness“.
Individuality, loneliness, selfishness, solitary are expressions that are depicted in his work. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
