A comprehensive overview of Raf Buedts' work. The book encompasses 450 images. As an artist, Raphaël Buedts (1946–2009) discretely built up an impressive oeuvre, drifting with ease between sculpture, drawing and painting. His subtle shifts between abstraction and tactility and between function and form demonstrate an uncommon lucidity and rare poetic skill. Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of his work at SMAK, Gent.
