 rest, ratio and order

The geometric nature of Gilbert Decock's work creates the concreteness that completely depersonalises the work.
Circle and square and later also the diamond form the starting point of Gilbert Decock's work. In the eighties, the shapes were cut into strips, tapes and bars with various widths and colors.
he tonal depths of black, brown, blue and white, with later addition of yellow and red give the final result.
Decock's work exudes calm and serenity and it becomes a little more playful in the nineties with omissions, tiltings and line breaks.
In the later years, the completely symmetrical shape of the work gives way to fragmentation and shifts.
We find Gilbert's work in more than 40 public collections in Belgium and neighboring countries, but also in Italy and Canada.
