" I have two bodies of work: the one is embracing Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism, the other could be classified under what I like to call Imaginism".
That is how François van Halter describes his vibrant canvases in his own words.
" Normally I don’t paint symbols.
The symbols meaning (if any) is to be found in the presentation and in the treatment of the objects and subjects themselves.
Yet, at times a dimorphic style seems to be appropriate to convey my innermost “reality”, especially in my imaginative work."
" Love and peace is what I always hope to convey – even in my wildest and seemingly brutal works"
