Comment
クロード・サント氏は1997年頃よりプリントザウルス(国際版画交流協会)を通じて、日本とベルギーの交流展や作家との交流の中心的役割を果たしてきました。サント氏の作品は静かでありながら強靭で、重厚な黒のマチエールに支えられ、とても魅力的であり、見る人に大きな感動を与えます。

Through “The Printsaurus” (International Print Exchange Association) Claude Sinte has been playing a central role in the exchange exhibitions between Japan and Belgium as well as in exchanges between artists. Sinte’s works are inspirational and moving with a tranquility supported by a tough, black matière.
