Seeing a rainbow (through a window that isn't there)
by Dries Segers
Description

In his first artist book, 'Seeing a rainbow...' (2015), he captures these inconspicuous components through a rainbow prism. it reads as an accumulating colour code and allows for free associations across the book. Segers uses colour to highlight the extraordinary in the everyday, but here he is just as sceptical as he is lyrical. his aestheticism also serves to remind us of familiar crises: those of ecology, consumption and urbanisation. His gentle insistence that we see and address things differently, and do not slip into grey indifference, is expressed in fluid compositions that pierce through the prosaic and create a dynamic between surface and depth.
