– German Artist
By blurring, deconstructing, fragmenting or even destroying the smoothness of the surface Anna wants to put the focus on what lies beneath . When we look at people’s faces we often assume that we already know much about their personalities. But it is what is hidden behind the surface, which makes the whole. There is no such thing as one truth, for everybody has got their own truth.
Jan works with acrylics, oil paints, pastels and various mixing techniques on canvas, paper and wood-panels, or expresses his ideas in the shape of small sculptures (mainly bronze a ‘cire perdue’).
Jan doesn’t feel bound by established schools or ‘ismn’, but likes to make -while working- use of all available means and possibilities; this in the conviction that every form of expressing oneself is the right one as long as it touches the viewer. Favourite topics : moving animals, people in mutual contact, female body lines.
