Ben Goossens

4 12 2011

(Excuse me. I have fallen into a Kenneth Clark form of speaking. And I can’t get out of it.)

Goossens has three qualities that make for a terrific artist. He is a Belgian. He uses bowler hats. And he has talent. Oh, and there is a fourth. He has ideas. And their fun. Interesting. But not I think terribly original. Still, I love to look at his work. There is to my mind more Magritte in his work than Dali. He has none of Dali’s spirituality. Or showmanship. But he has Magritte’s humor and intelligence. And more than that I think.
