Zelfportret in huiskamer [Self-Portrait in Living Room]

Fred Bervoets


Painting, 194 x 205 cm.
Materials: acrylic, canvas

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK6121_M121).

From 1988 Bervoets his work sobers up and becomes visibly more austere. This is also reflected in his self-portraits. Zelfportret in huiskamer is an example of his ‘White Series’: the white surface of the canvas is just as important as the areas covered with paint. Bervoet’s home environment and family situation is another recurrent subject matter. For him, family life is both a pain and the ultimate bliss. In his many etchings and paintings on this theme we encounter simple compositions with just a few centrally located and almost linear figures.
