Jan Theo De Vleeschauwer
Jan Theo De Vleeschauwer presents small-sized paintings in oil on canvas. The abstract composition is based on blurry layers and dimmed colours. The composition is dispersed, and the stroke, although a controlled one, transcends the limits of the format. The work can be interpreted as the result of the artist’s inner turmoil. An imaginative viewer could recognize contours of figures in the structured parts of the surface. The azure layers bear witness to the contemplations of the author, and the peaceful gesture to the oniric research of the cause-effective impression of the meaning of the world. The flow and constant change are confusing, which is why an effort has to be made to be able to concentrate on here and now. The depth of the universe and human spirituality have never been explored in such a way to be understood, which takes this work on the road of self-understanding, exploring of the artist’s personality. A view into oneself.
