Studio Frederik Leyers
Frederik Leyers (1976) is a typical example of a ‘late bloomer’. After working more than 10 years as a lawyer, he started painting at the age of 40. At first, the conventional ‘oilpaint on canvas’, but now gradually expanding his terrain of work. Frederik likes Isolated images/objects/subjects that allow for different interpretations. dependent on the spectators’ mood of the day. His starting point is a photograph or a still, found or selfmade. These chosen images mostly reflect the ongoing thoughts Frederik is dealing with that moment. Ongoing topics of thought are morality and identity and how they evolve, both on an individual level as on the level of societies.
