Art Nocturne Knocke

De Jonckheere Gallery presents the Monegasque painter Philippe Pastor at Art Nocturne Knocke

Art Nocturne Knocke 2018 is delighted to announce the presence of the prestigious and internationally acclaimed De Jonckheere Gallery. It was founded in 1976 in Brussels and specialises in the sale and study of initially exclusive Flemish paintings ranging from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century. The gallery established itself in Paris in 1984. It is a faithful and welcome guest at the most distinguished art exhibits where old art occupies an important place as the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris and TEFAF Maastricht. In April 2011 the gallery opened a new space in the historic district of Geneva, accompanied by a significant expansion of its offered exhibits so that in addition to the old art more modern and contemporary works could be exhibited. In this capacity, the Master Paintings at De Jonckheere Gallery, in 2012, appeared for the very first time with both old masters and modern works at the Biennale des Antiquaires in Paris. In 2017 the gallery establishes in Monaco and it immediately represented the Monegasque painter and sculptor Philippe Pastor.



Philippe Pastor was born in Monaco in 1961 and is a member of an extremely prominent Monegasque family. He lives and works in the hills of Monaco as well as in Saint-Tropez and the Barcelona region. In the 1990s his work was exhibited during two editions of the Venice Biennale and afterwards also throughout the world. In 2015 he acted as an official artist at the Monaco Pavilion during the World Expo "EXPO" in Milan. His entire oeuvre is both substantive and formally contemporary in the sense that it is a fascinating and occasionally engaging meditation on the often painful relationship between man and nature as well as the closely related loss of what was once an unspoilt bloom and powerful beauty. He quickly gained a great international reputation with non-figurative and often rather large paintings that suggest a material feel due to his use of pigments in which branches and leaves are often sunk. 'Arbres brûlés' - upright burnt tree trunks are a remarkable and distinctive visual concept of his, which he recuperated in the forests of southern France, where forest fires often rage through. The impressive figures and large canvases at the entrance of the exhibit will undoubtedly surprise, touch and reflect on visitors to ANK 2018. This is also the start of a major ANK EXTRA MUROS 2019 project, of which we will go more into detail a bit later.
