imas-logoMcALLEN - The International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS) opened its most recent exhibit last night:  “Hugo De Clercq: Works of the 1970s.”

This Belgian Constructivist artist has made important contributions to the development of post-war art in Europe.  Hugo De Clercq’s (Ghent, Belgium; 1930-1996) career has been defined by the idea of search for the form and its characteristics.  De Clercq’s quest for form in the 1960s and 1970s led him to a deeper and different approach of the concept of media. His approach left no technique left untouched: painting, drawing, sculpting, and printmaking while eliminating color and the figurative subject matter.

De Clercq’s work has been exhibited in Belgium, France, Germany, the former country of Yugoslavia, Japan, Uruguay, Mexico, the Netherlands and the United States.  His art belongs to the private collections of the Belgian government, Museum of the Arts Ghent, Nederlandse Kunststichting, and Musée George Pompidou Paris, to name a few.

The exhibit will be on display at the International Museum of Art & Science through Feb. 23, 2014.
