Luc Peire

Born in 1916 - Belgium

BIOGRAPHY

Luc Peire was an internationally renowned exponent of post-war constructivist abstraction and “Geta” is a superb example of his tantalising delicately constructed compositions. Part draughtsman, part spiritualist, Peire sought to achieve ultimate harmonious equilibrium which he referred to as metaphysical abstraction.

The balance of colours and lineal rhythms relate to the source of his inspiration for the work whether it be an event, an emotion or a piece of music.

During the 1960’s he extended this approach to whole scale installations or “Environments” in which the walls became part of his composition and the floors and ceilings were mirrored creating an infinite spatial illusion, the first of these was installed at the Musée Nationale d’Art Moderne, Paris in 1967, for which he received international acclaim.
