Vermeersch is best known for his “colour-graded” paintings which are the result of blending a large number of colours in such a perfectly uniform and smooth finish that the separation from one colour to the next, can no longer be perceived, it disappears. The melding of the multiple tonalities creates a blurred effect in a sort of infinitude.
This is definitely what one experiences in front of the main work at ProjecteSD’s current exhibition: a large scale painting on canvas in seven parts, that can be described in a chromatic scale from dark to light between greyish, blueish or purple colours fading into yellow or whitish tones. The quality, the monumentality and the spatial dimension of the painting, attaching perfectly to the architecture of the room, makes its chromatic path take on an additional dimension. Thus, the initial perception of colour becomes not simply visual, but spatial and temporal as well.
