Eelco Maan Artist Bio:
Eelco Maan's compositions in colour can be compared to musical arrangements. Strong contrasts are blended exemplary and with a superb sense of harmony into a unity of subtle variances. His paintings possess a fascinating, mysterious quality which occupy a world of their own, an indescribable world which by far transcends our rational existence. His story begins when words are superfluous. Eelco Maan has been working as a visual artist since 1994. Initially experimenting with figurative, Fauvism and surrealistic elements - influenced by Klee, MirÃ³ and the CoBrA movement - he gradually adopted a more austere and abstract style. Any "˜Moon-watcher' (his Dutch name "˜Maan' means "˜Moon') might very well recognize his attraction to the craquelure in early medieval art, to the savage Pollock eruptions and the obstinate colour abstractions by EugÃ¨ne Brands and Willem de Kooning. While his works are abstract, we recognize In them very real imagery - sunlight dancing off water or bursting through mist, cloud formations and rich autumnal colours. His work represents the lyrical abstract art tradition but with its own merit and a mystical undertone. His oeuvre touches ineffably upon works by preceding masters, but always shows a compelling idiosyncratic character, recognisable for its authenticity. His work has been displayed in galleries and Artfairs in The Netherlands, UK, France and Belgium since 1995, both as a solo exhibitor and in collaboration with other artists. His paintings are purchased by (private) collectors worldwide.
