– Gert Motmans –


Gert Motmans was born in Hasselt (Belgium).
He graduated from the Fashion Department at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp where he still lives and works as a fashion designer.
Attracted by the darker side of things , his images are at times cinematic and dramatic and full of duality ; darkness vs light – chaos vs harmony – absence vs presence – attraction vs rejection His work is an intimate mixture of his memories , nature and architecture. In essence it is his visualisation of ‘the absent’ only showing what is essential, creating a form of emptiness, desolation and estrangement resulting in a poetic, mysterious and melancholic atmosphere.
