Brent Hallard interviews Jan Maarten Voskuil.
Hallard opens the discussion noting that Voskuil’s works are: “Deceptively simple, singularly shaped and formed, canvases bloom from the wall each in a different color. Hung together they suggest a word, a string of them, arranged to convey the written form, though any attempt to decipher or push this further only adds umbrage. Instead, when the syntactic muscle relaxes, the color forms open to the heart of the matter, to an abstraction of color and form. And like a bloom, what at first appears singular blends into a myriad of differing shades and variations of color beyond any particular hue – here infinite greens, purples, oranges and blues come through.”
