‘The Paint is the Message'. The Physical Painting of Sam Dillemans
(Eric Rinckhout) THE LOW COUNTRIES - 2013, № 21, PP. 182-191
Dillemans has painted boxers, nudes and couples making love. In the last few years he has got his teeth into portraits of admired writers. In his work he transposes the great masters into his own forms and paint. Always looking for that one, ultimate image, he considers painting to be and endless quest and an unceasing struggle. When he's really stuck, the painter starts on a self-portrait.
