…is the sentence I have been repeating the whole day. This weekend was Brussels Art Days, and at my grande surprise, all I saw in downtown Brussels was paintings. I remember three or four years ago going to the Prix de la Jeune Peinture Belge (literally the Prize for Young Belgium Painting) and barely recollect seeing a single painting. This year, there was almost a prominency for painting in Downtown Brussels. So yes, painting seems to be back for now – you never know painting keeps dying and resurrecting – and it’s not abc berlin contemporary “about painting” which will contradict this, and Ponyhof is happy about it!
