Jan Astner Art Statement

The world in which a man lives, consists of his interior and his surroundings. These are two different worlds, often contradictory or inconsistent. Each of us is different and receives their surroundings differently. It is the same when it comes to how we are received. The series shows the richness and diversity of people and their relationships with the environment they live in. Each painting is an analysis of the interaction between the internal and external world of man, in the material, sensual as well as psychological sphere. To present this uniqueness and diversity, Jan Astner is using a different technique of applying paint on the canvas each time.
