° Zelzate, BE, 1963

Education: Royal Academy of Modern Art, Ghent, BE.
Professional artist since 1986

The paintings by Wim Ricourt, mainly oil on canvas, radiate a certain energy which stems from the authentic, bold and intensive qualities of the artist’s work.  He chooses to feed his inspiration by things out of every-day life.  These subjects, close to nature, provide him with genuine and unlimited material to work with.  Landscapes, horses, cows, sunflowers  and voluptuous bouquets come to life on the canvas. Ricourt also teases with the boundaries of the viewer’s perception as he  captures a playful interaction with depth and proportion.  From a distance the image is totally clear, but one irresistibly feels drawn closer to the canvas and finds himself immersed in a massive colourfield.
