Vic Gentils

1919 - 1997

Born in Ilfracombe (GB), died in Aalst (BE).

In 1955, Gentils starts making abstract paintings with architectural references and stylised characters evocative of sculptural relief, work that seems to be an introduction to the hybrids for which he has become known. The objects that he begins producing as of 1957 are not purified forms like those of other abstract sculptors. He recycles scrap metal and leaves his work to chance until he arrives at a wanton counterweight to the 'most beautiful' building in the city.
