Jan Andriesse

Jan Andriesse is the painter of light, space and light reflections on water. A gifted observer with a fascination for light effects. Jan Andriesse spends hours in his houseboat contemplating the sparkle of light on water. His large, abstract canvases capture the changing light at different times of the day. Daylight and dusk are like oxygen and space to Andriesse, whose work combines a scientist’s precision with the romance of a painter.
