Jan Van Imschoot

°1963, Ghent (BE) – lives and works in Noncourt-sur-le-Rongeant (FR)

Jan Van Imschoot’s exploration of the possibilities offered by painting has resulted in a body of work that draws its power from highly critical and dramatic themes and contains references to countless artists, from Tintoret to Luc Tuymans, Goya to Matisse.

Jan Van Imschoot places his figures, decors and narratives at History’s margins, using assembled perspectives, strong tones, bodies in motion and brushwork he describes as ‘anarcho-baroque’. His work delves into a number of recurring motifs: freedom, censorship and the violence of political and ideological systems.
