Honger [Hunger]

Paul De Vree


Photography, 56 x 79 cm.
Materials: photo emulsion, canvas

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK2638).

For a number of pieces in his poesia visiva De Vree also drew on other means besides photography, cuttings and drawings. In Honger the eponymous word is painted in white acrylic on a piece of sandpaper; the letters are formed using various bones from the human skeleton. With these sparse and simple means he evokes a provocative image of the harrowing famines in developing countries. The poem was enlarged and put on canvas by means of a photographic process.
