Roger Wittevrongel - Gate with red stripe (1973)
Around 1970 [Wittevrongel] arrived at a hyperrealistic style with an absolute accuracy in the reproduction of what the eye could see. However, he continued to evolve within this style and concentrated on trivial subjects, which he also depicted with the greatest precision. The subjects themselves - interiors, fragments of architecture and female characters, are treated as still-lives, which gives them an abstract quality. These works in particular raise questions concerning man’s relationship with visible reality.
