Press release

In his new exhibition at Almine Rech Gallery, Matthieu Ronsse presents an ensemble of new works which he produced simultaneously, and which were also installed for a short time in Male Castle (near Bruges). In his work, everything is mixed together: new wave music, paintings by old masters, snapshots, fashion photographs, his studio, earlier work… Together they form a fertile paint crust in which, time and again, the layerings of imagery and matter create surprising possibilities and new potentialities.
