ABOUT

Pierre Bergian (born 1965, Bruges, Belgium) studied Art History and Archaeology, and combined with his fascination for architecture his paintings explore space and structure and make use of the presence of architectural components. Bergian's work looks at rooms and spaces that are often almost empty, bar a small selection of furnishings and objects. He is intrigued by the many old, abandoned houses he encountered as a child: these buildings were shrouded in an air of the mysterious.

His interiors are often filled with pictures whether they be hung on the walls or piled against an easel on the floor, often being depicted as no more than a square shade of colour upon the wall, possessing little detail. By doing so Bergian insures our attention is focused on the composition and presence of his work rather than what is displayed within the scene.
