Collection: Jan Wessel

In the painter Jan Wessel's artistic universe, the imagination meets the picturesque, the playful the thought-provoking and the solemn the dramatic. Jan works with various forms of expression that span areas such as painting, light boxes, collage, monotype, lithography, assembly and installation.

Through his many and varied exhibitions, one can encounter elements that seem familiar - perhaps for some a flashback from a previous experience - forgotten, but still buried deep in the subconscious. Many associations and references are embedded in the artist's pictorial space - representing a confusion of life and art, together with the artist's personal view of its extensive pictorial potential. It can be the contrasting beauty and indulgence of life, or the characteristic image of various art forms.
