Scheer Michel

Michel Scheer ou la fusion art-science-symbole

Born in Namur, Michel Scheer is someone particular among the Belgian artists. Maybe because he strictly refuses the artistical and other "categories", practical boxes where the artists are definitely being placed in. Michel Scheer claims a global, systematic, widest possible view which multiple passages and connections between the territories. Why should we divide the art into independent domains, maintaining only episodic reports with the society where it happens? This open and curious mind crosses cheerfully the barriers between the disciplines of human activity and demands a way of creation based on the total fusion science-art-symbols. The oeuvres he has manufactured for ten years succeed in this astonishing fusion.
