Jan Wisse's paintings combine a strong evocative content of imaginative worlds, mastering composition, and painterly exploration. In this series, he explores the relationship between colours and the movement in them.
“I tend to give the rather dreary datum of ‘la condition humaine’, – a leading concept in my paintings – a somewhat relativizing humorous twist, or turn it into an apparent unreality.”
Jan Wisse earned his Ph.D. in Studies of Art History, Art Philosophy, and Cultural History from the Academy for the Arts, Fine Arts Department, Utrecht in 1966. He lives and works in Delft, The Netherlands.
