Dirk Vander Eecken (born 1954 in Mortsel, lives and works in Antwerp) was originally trained as a graphic artist, but gradually started making paintings. In his early graphics he incorporated existing icons, images and maps that he used as a background. When he began to convert the line patterns he saw in landscapes into grids and patterns that continually produced new, increasingly abstract works of art, he turned to painting. Vander Eecken has been working closely with the electron microscopy and nanotechnology group at the University of Antwerp for several years. The structures that scientists reveal with their electron microscope serve him to compose his multi-layered paintings. No brush or brush is used, but grids and thin layers of sprayed paint. His experimental approach produces work in which painting, graphics and science influence each other. He creates new images that emerge from the structured chaos that science explores. And which in turn are composed as a structured chaos with the possibility of discovering an afterimage that ignores the factuality of science.
