Luc Fierens
Weerde, Belgium


“Luc Fierens creates strong visual poems that oscillate between beauty and apprehension. In his collages Fierens juxtaposes images of nuanced eroticism with images of historical struggle that summon the vulnerability of the human condition. The viewer senses a mystery behind the work, something that wants to be revealed but as one tries to analyse it, it eludes.” ( 2021)
