About the selection:

When I came to visit the Vandenberg studio in September 2011, I was particularly interested in one of Philippe’s drawing books in the archive. Here, the abstract patterns overlay the “concrete” poetic handwritten texts. For me the merging and overlaying of the abstract and text based concerns in the drawings, which are both prevalent in Philippe’s later paintings, gives us deeper insight into his thinking and aesthetic approach.
