Frank Janszoon van Dijk Artist Bio:

Conserved Art. “I find simplicity that touches you, intriguing”, says Frank Janszoon van Dijk about his latest project ‘Colortypes’ that enables him to reduce feelings and emotions to an almost archetypal design in shape and color. “The minimalism of this concept offers me unlimited possibilities to experiment with, and challenges me to continue developing myself in this fundamental form of expression.” While making art, Frank Janszoon van Dijk feels total freedom whereby time is no longer essential. “To me, art is timeless. It surpasses the outside and reaches the universal where people of all kinds connect.” With ‘Colortypes’, Frank Janszoon van Dijk gives new meaning to the art of printing. Books have become motionless objects where content no longer matters. What remains is an inner reaction to the printed matter. The cross-cut slices of books determine the end product in combination with the feeling Frank experiences during the creative process. By using different colors, oil paint, and 24 carat gold foil, seemingly identical reliefs give varying moods. Using the same parameters, Frank Janszoon van Dijk is able to make the onlooker experience many different feelings, like openness or security. Certain conditions like daylight give ever-changing nuances which continuously alter the observer’s perception. ‘Colortypes’ makes you feel what it visualizes. These past years, Frank Janszoon van Dijk has created a wide range of different art forms. The Dutch Royal Family and the world-renowned fashion designer Jan Taminiau are just two of the many that own some of his artwork. Frank Janszoon van Dijk is related to minimalist artist Jan Schoonhoven (1914-1994), founder of the Nul-movement, with whom he also shares his interest to be expressive according to the method of Minimal-Art like Zero and Colorfield.
