Jan De Vliegher Treasury Series recreates precious porcelain through painting. The Belgian artist Jan De Vliegher provides a contemporary eye to these classic dishes. As porcelain is often overlooked, these paintings bring it to the forefront of the viewer, using a neutral background to truly emphasize the details of the plates and show off the deep color palette.
Each piece covers a varying intricate design ranging from a floral to a reference of historical nobility. This diversity in subject matter shows how De Vliegher disregards the different historical periods or plate genres, and prefers to focus on the possibility of porcelain.
The series is compelling enough to visit in person and on show at the Mike Weiss Gallery until June 9th 2012,
