“Under Construction” suggests something that might not be completed yet. It is a purely architectural image with a haunting emphasis on the colour green. The structure that is captured in the image creates a pleasing pattern for the eye and can be seen as both vertical and horizontal, and the game played with shadows and shapes creates a almost organic effect, despite the rigid material of the structure. Since the late antiquities, the colour green has signified life and more specifically regrowth.
About Gilbert Claes
Gilbert is a member of the highly curated 1X fine arts photography community. He considers himself a follower of ‘suprematism’, which he describes as an Abstract Art movement based upon ‘the supremacy of pure artist feeling’ rather than on the visual depiction of objects. In school, his favourite subject was aesthetics, the doctrine of beauty. He later studied at the art academy of Hasselt, and won several national and international short film competitions.
Claes seeks technical perfection in his work with pure, minimalistic and strong compositions. Now a teacher, he conveys his love for architecture through his photography work.
