The enhancement effort #3

Mathieu V. Staelens’ drawings consist of a technique on polymer and chemical processes developed in-house since 2009. They offer a new aesthetic experience, technically this approach allows the pigments to stack themselves and renders a surface reminiscent of powdery velvet. The most striking resemblance is found in the fragile surfaces of Yves Klein’s blue monochromes. Fashion and lifestyle magazines (=personality industries) are a constant source of materials for his works. Central is the woman as an idea, symbol, product, and being. Specifically the capitalist construction and instrumentalization of the “feminine”. Whether interiors, situations of duality, portraits, or objects they all relate to an active contemporary etiquette and the use of Beauty interwoven with perspectives on identity, freedom, love, and death.

Drawing: 14 cm x 9 cm.
Frame: 50 cm x 40 cm.

Mathieu V. Staelens is born in Ostend. Still alive and unveiling personality industry produced mindfucks with poetic, surrealist, realist, layered drawings. His artistic toolbox uses a hybrid of philosophy and visual culture to unmask the identity proposal machinery of fashion which pressures the etiquette of contemporary social interactions.
