Tom Liekens: Lust for Life

Frank Herreman, Sven A. Kirsten, Katharina Van Cauteren

Tom Liekens (°1977) does monumental paintings and collages in a highly individual visual idiom. One subject that constantly recurs is nature in its artificial form, the way we see it in zoos and natural history museums. Or the way landscapes and animals have been portrayed in the course of art history, in fairytales and in films. His work is larded with references to art history and cultural history. His very specific work puts him in an entirely unique position in the art world. This richly illustrated book, published in association with the Friends of De Zwarte Panter, provides an overview of his most recent works. It also includes critical essays by art historians Frank Herreman and Katharina Van Cauteren and Tiki archaeologist ven Kirsten.
