Pierre Bergian

Belgium based artist, Pierre Bergian, expresses his fascination with architecture through his paintings by exploring space and structure. Old abandoned houses and their air of mystery have always intrigued him. His paintings look at rooms and spaces that are almost empty, bar a small selection of furnishings and objects. The interiors are often filled with pictures, indicated by devoid square shades of color, whether hung on the walls or piled against an easel on the floor. Bergian studied at the University of Ghent and has published writings on the topic of design and architecture. He has had solo exhibitions at Purdy Hicks, London; Gallery Laurent de Puybaudet, Paris; Galerie Josine Bokhoven, Amsterdam, and his work in included in the permanent collection at the British Museum in London.
