Rudi Pillen

Rudi Pillen was a Belgian painter, draftsman and sculptor. He was born in Moen in 1931 and died in Blankenberge in 2014. He was educated at Sint Lucas in Ghent from 1949 to 1954. He stayed in Zaire in the 1960s and taught anatomy at the medical faculty of the University of Lubumbashi. We notice African influences in his work. He found his inspiration in humans and animals. The female nude was central to his oeuvre. He developed his own expressionist design. From the press: 'With a rich color range, he first lays a background, on which he forms anonymous silhouettes in black lines. Then he paints over the canvas in grey-yellow, sand-coloured tones, but spares the silhouettes' and 'His painting method is expressive rather than decorative. He comes across as outspokenly lyrical, as far as possible from the chilly current that characterizes the geometric art genre' 'n 'In an unimaginably flexible way he can give a figure a tangible inner presence, suggest rhythm, the things of every day with a moaning smile' 'n finally (1997): 'The ethereal atmosphere of his earlier work, in which figures stepped from the depth of the canvas towards the viewer, has been replaced by canvases in which people and animals appear, swathed in bright shades of red and green and in which the faces are also more prominent.” He settled in California. We can find his work in the Museum of Brussels, among other places. He is mentioned in the Lexicon of West Flemish visual artists III, Artists and galleries 1997; BAS II and Two centuries of signatures of Belgian artists. (piron)
