In Mylemans’ work there is room for a problematic, somewhat muggy intensity which is most likely a sign of his (and our) spirit of the age. Indeed, never before was there a wider gap between nature and its landscapes and the day to day world in which we live.
Therefore, in his paintings Mylemans does not look back into a constructed paradise in which people, animals and landscapes coexist symbiotically. He does not feed us with pictorial lies but he would rather eliminate both man and animals from them in order to glorify solitary landscapes.
Below is a video of the artist and his works:
Marc Mylemans' work exhibits the influencing touches of impressionism, expressionism and symbolism. At first glance his paintings may look slightly wild and strident, but at a deeper level a soothing pattern emerges and they become 'balm for the soul'. An expert at using layers of paint to elicit movement and texture, Marc Mylemans has an extraordinary ability to create depth and structure with otherwise wild brush strokes.
