Thomas Houseago: Vision Paintings


Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium / Brussels / Art

The artist Thomas Houseago was born in West Yorkshire and went to Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He then moved to Brussels for eight years, where as a young man he looked upon its museums and galleries with awe. Houseago is now almost 50, and for him a solo show at the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels feels like a dream. “The cyclical nature of being brought from seclusion into the city of my youth, and now embraced with the support of its curators and museums, where I would spend countless hours as a young artist,” he says, “represents an indescribable connection.” This exhibition presents Houseago’s large-scale paintings and drawings—primal visions—as well as a view of his journals, never before exhibited. —E.C.
