Estate of Hugo Roelandt

The last part of Roelandt's artistic career is little known to the public or even fellow artists. In the early nineties he returned in the context of the Antwerp Academy to photography. He started an investigation of the basic principles behind photography and video, and transformed a series of self-portraits dating from the early 70s into striking colour studies. He also became interested in 'formless' materials like air and water, light and colour. Some of his last work were installations which consisted solely of light and colour.
