  Biography Statement
 

"3d fractals"

Studies : Art Academy, Brugge, Belgium (1987-1990) - traditional drawing, painting and photography techniques AKI Art Academy, Enschede, The Netherlands (1990-1993) - Media-art, computer generated art and video installations.
This is a bit boring, isn't it? OK, was born in 1958 in the town of Ostend (Belgium). Early pictures show me either drawing or writing down little poems and stories. Would have loved an early education in arts, but i was told this wasn't a "profession".
An angry young man resulted from that, until at the age of 29, i put all that behind me and went to art academy for a six full years, ending with a bachelors degree in media-art.
Now, that's more like it, isn't it? ;-)

Here we enter the difficult part of the exercise. Have I anything to say about myself or my work? Can I describe my own creations? Depends on the media I'm using, I guess. My poems and short stories will show me as a kid of the "no future' generation. My drawings and paintings are like detached, almost classical studies. But what I'm showing here are my 3d fractal images, so what are these about? In the mid '90s, I started constructing video-installations in a 3d-environment on computer. Later on, I dropped the video part all together, and specialized in 'stills'. So when I discovered "Xenodream", a 3d fractal program in 2003, I finaly found a tool where i could realy express my inner emotions. The program has endless possibilities, as you can see in my works. Enjoy!

Unfortunaly, Dirk died of cancer on november 4th 2008.
The world has lost a very special and creative person. Our condolences to his family and friends!.
