°1978. Lives and works in Antwerp and La Roche Morey
Geoffrey de Beer’s work is generally conceptual and political. His quasi-scientific methodology of strictly dispassionate experimentation and reporting is firmly situated within an institutional context and heavily extended into an institutional critique. However, his latest series he breaks with previous conceptual and performance-based artistic strategies and treads radically new territory. The entirely new series of works is inspired by the colorful architecture of small French Alsatian villages, the "golden ratio" of traditional painting composition, the form and color theory of the Bauhaus, poetry and the quest for aesthetic excellence.
