In every crack that’s where the light comes in
Jan Janssens (Tilburg, 2000) invites the viewer to turn inward and reflect on the processes that are happening within us. He addresses themes such as love, connection, spirituality, and sustainability.
In his paintings, sculptures and installations he portrays cities with skyscrapers. The high buildings are a metaphor for our restless society. He puts the city and connections up against each other. The connections are spiritual and material and come to expression in his work where many materials are combined together in a childlike visual language with a serious edge.
In his work, he zooms in on what we can no longer see because we are blinded by the acceleration in society. Jan invites you to feel what his works do to you, preferably with your heart. According to him, this is the compass we all should follow, and it will lead us to where we need to be.
