“In his paintings, drawings and collages, Johan Clarysse moves between the tradition of figuration and contemporary questioning of the image. In his work, his fascination with the human condition is expressed in paint, ink, pencil and watercolour on paper. Each is a representation of personal impulses and desires, of people and situations that are both seductive and disturbing, where a possible vision of reality can be both clear and mysterious.
There is an internal tension in the image, not only because of the sporadic use of text, but also because of the sometimes unruly connections of graphic, organic and pictorial motifs…” (Gilles Naudin).
