Jan Wisse

b. 1955, The Netherlands

The recent paintings of Jan Wisse, for their composition and use of light and matter, show his affection for the Golden Age painters, such as Rembrandt and Vermeer, yet, to him, a strong touch of contemporary is as important.
Jan Wisse’s paintings combine a strong evocative content of imaginative worlds, mastering composition and painterly exploration.
In the Character Cocoons series, Jan depicts the human figure in each unique ‘umbrella’ sculptures. “I like to give the rather dreary datum of ‘la condition humaine’, – a leading concept in my works – a somewhat relativizing humorous twist, or to turn it into an apparent unreality.”
