Bendt Eyckermans' enigmatic new paintings suggest glimpses into hidden psychological spaces. The tense, unstable narratives Eyckermans constructs through cryptic symbols and spliced, ambiguous Hitchcockian scenes create emotionally charged, complex and impenetrable internal worlds. The paintings depict people and places that surround the artist and are composed from life or from the artist’s own drawings, attempting to describe fragmented memories and moments.

Statues appear in these paintings as a looming presence or as statue-like bodies. Eyckermans is a painter born into five generations of sculptors and reveals through his compositions a complicated personal lineage in relation to these objects, as well as the complex genealogy of these objects themselves, weighted by European and colonial art histories.
