Slabbinck Rik

Rik Slabbinck was a Belgian artist who was born in Bruges in 1914 and who died in 1991. He was a painter, draftsman and graphic artist. Education at the Academy in Bruges (1933-1935) and at Sint-Lucas in Ghent. Worked for a year and a half under C. Permeke. Initially worked in the dark atmosphere of Permeke, but from about 1950 his palette gradually brightened. Realized landscapes, still lifes, nudes, portraits. Kept aloof from expressionism. It was influenced by Fauvism. Loved hard colors and nice, contrasting surfaces. Worked with the palette knife rather than the brush. This pursuit of neatness and clarity of form and color eventually led him to use unadulterated colours. Second for the Prix de Rome in 1940 and 1943. Participated repeatedly in Apport's exhibitions. In 1945 co-founder of the Jeune Peinture Belge. However, he resigned from the group in 1947. Was a teacher at the Higher Institute in Antwerp from 1963 to 1979. Work in the Museums in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Bruges, Deurle, Liège. Mentioned in the Lexicon of West Flemish visual artists II (1993), BAS I and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists.
