‘Sweet Memories’ – Miguel Delie
09-05-2015 / 24-05-2015
From Saturday May 9 until Sunday May 24 we organize a solo show with works from Miguel Delie, called ‘Sweet Memories’. The official opening will take place on Saturday May 9 from 4 pm until 7 pm. The artist will be present.
It is the first time that Miguel Delie exhibits at Jaski Gallery. He works with materials like old toys and other dumped stuff, which he combines on panels. This Belgian artist LIVES AND WORKS IN TORHOUT. HE STUDIED AT THE ART ACADEMY IN BRUGES AND THEN WENT TO WORK AS A STYLIST TO DEVELOP AND FINANCE HIS ART. SINCE FIVE YEARS, HE CONCENTRATES ENTIRELY ON HIS ARTISTIC SKILLS.
“I ADORE TRIVIAL THINGS”, DELIE STATES. “BANALITY AND CONSUMPTION HAVE BECOME A SOCIAL NORM, WHICH I EMBRACE AS AN ARTIST. MY WORK IS BASED ON DREAMS AND IMPOSSIBLE EXPECTATIONS. IT IS FLEEING FEARS AND ARISES FROM IT. I CREATE ILLUSIONS. I WANT THE VIEWER TO THINK ABOUT THE ILLUSIONS. THEY ARE MEMORIES WITHOUT COMPLEXITY , WHICH ALSO NEED TO EXPRESS JOY. A CAREFREE PAST WHERE I WANT TO PULL THE VIEWER FROM HIS DAILY PATH. HUMOR AND COLOR PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE. I WANT THE VIEWER TO BE HAPPY ABOUT IT. I TARGET IN MY WORK ALWAYS FOR ORDER AND PERFECTION IN THE CHAOS OF COLOR AND MATERIAL. IT IS AN ABSTRACT MASS OF DUMPED STUFF , BUT WITH EVERY STEP YOU TAKE CLOSER TO THIS MASS, THE STORY COMES MORE TO LIFE.”
