a dreamlike and original universe.
Patrick Van der Elst lives and works in belgium.
his main concern is not to confine himself in any formalism or filiation, in order to create a dreamlike and original universe.
he defines himself as self-taught, a bit of a jack-of-all-trades, since he has to set up sets, paint backgrounds, make sculptures, invent staging, place lighting or rework images.
his work is guided above all by the emotion that it could arouse and a certain idea of beauty. motherhood, filiation, the human being and his relationship to nature, consumerism and intimacy are recurring themes in his work.
