BERNARD VILLERS | prints

[MULTIPLES by Irène Laub Gallery]

Bernard Villers is an important figure of Belgian abstraction, whose work is characterized by playfulness and a distinctive chromatic intensity. While his artistic practice mainly revolves around painting, he became very interested in printmaking in the early 1970s. He studied its techniques at the Arts et Métiers in Brussels and started to create multiples for himself and other artists. In a context of social upheaval, he also opened a communal workshop to print political posters. Printmaking became both a professional activity and a social tool but, more importantly, it had a crucial influence on the way Bernard Villers conceived his compositions.

Until 1968, his painting was expressive and somewhat lyrical. Screen printing allowed him to play freely with combinations of shapes and colors, while at the same time requiring precision and discipline. It changed his way of looking at painting and encouraged him to eliminate every superfluous line to move toward clarity and austerity. Bernard Villers’ practice of printmaking led to the development of his distinctive style of geometrical lines and strong color blocks.
