Soon at The Jane: Poetic recycling

a symbiosis between the two craftsmen Nick Bril & Guy Leclef

Essential, original, material, sensible. Those are the main characteristics of Guy Leclef’s work. A genuine artist, constantly searching for the truth, he allows us to discover objects and structures as they really are. Strips of paper deployed like paint, thick accretions, thin layers, sliced, impregnated, cut and pasted: this is the raw material that forms the basis of Guy Leclef’s artworks. His oeuvre represents a perpetual quest for the essence of things. Varied and exhilarating art, molded from a mountain of waste paper. Through his signature attention to detail, he transforms his paper art into an experience. Call it poetic recycling.

Guy Leclef is a contemporary artist, represented by Forwart. He collaborated with Delvaux and Piet Boon in the past and his work is part of collections in all corners of the world, from Ivory Coast, Dubai, South Korea, Singapore to The UK.

Nick Bril is a rock & roll Michelin Star chef and entrepreneur, who combines fine dining, artists and designers. In his quest for new flavors, beats and experiences, Bril effortlessly interweaves fine dining, street food and comfort dishes at The Jane. There he offers a unique combination of top notch gastronomy ever since. He collaborates with Vincent Van Duysen and Dieter Vander Velpen among others.

Forwart is a contemporary art gallery for the unusual, unexpected and unique. We offer unique artworks to our international buyers who share our passion for the extraordinary. We put a spotlight on artists from the international art scene whom we deeply admire for their explosive talent and limitless creativity.
