Winter te Dilbeek, 1945

oil paint
907 x 1000 x 24 mm

Village life and rolling landscapes in Belgian Brabant are the main subjects in Brusselmans' oeuvre. Winter in Dilbeek shows his talent using colour in a geometric structure. The artist schematizes and abstracts, but never pursues a complete defiguration. The choice of his subjects allows him to experiment with colours, surfaces, lines and patterns. This poetic view of nature remains constructive in every way, but in a spontaneous broad brush technique. The lack of depth means that the colours and patterns are strongly emphasised on the foreground.
