About

Ref. ODEB-CON-0020-BAPAPO004

Stilt hut at the Tanganyika lakeshore. African painting from Belgium Congo, signed by DOM around 1950. Knife Painting. Oil on canvas. Original frame. DOM is a prolific painter with a passion for painting with knives. He depicts traditional African culture on a daily basis. His paintings tell of the calm of vulnerable populations who aspire to live in dignity through their work.
Whether or not conformity to nature is posited as a basic principle, painters in the Belgian Congo were called upon by their sponsors to release a creative energy that is supposed to have been preserved, even in the big cities, from all contact with other existing art forms in the world. The knife is a kind of flexible steel trowel, it allows a painting which, by its reliefs, catches the light and brings life to the painting. Painting with a knife allows the painter to develop a personal and powerful style. Painting with textures, but also gestural painting, painting with a knife also allows a very abstract approach to the subject, a simple suggestion of things while remaining figurative. Origin: Democratic Republic of Congo. Period: The 50s - Colonial period of Belgium Congo Conditions: Very good. Wear consistent with age and use. Frame in light wood painted in white with some little damages and woodworm holes.
