Robert Devriendt

Yesterday Marlborough Fine Art at 6 Albemarle Street, London, opened Robert Devriendt: Unsolved Cases (CLICK). This is its first exhibition by the Belgian artist, whose work is extremely unusual. He creates very high quality comic strips in which the crimes are ambiguous. It's up to the viewer to figure out what's going on. As long strips are hopeless when limited to 400 pixels and single pictures taken out of context are meaningless, I've taken the liberty of altering his shortest and least ambiguous strip - only two paintings - and placing one on top of the other to show the quality of his art. This is Unsolved Case 9 (2014).
