Jan Voss, acrylic on canvas, 1977

The ordered experiment is characteristic of the work of the German artist Jan Voss. In the beginning his work was characterized by a fragmentary structure of figurative and loose forms. They were connected by a line pattern. The artist abstracts his work by means of graphic techniques and the use of all kinds of materials. In the 1980s, his oeuvre evolved into three-dimensional reliefs that he created using collage techniques.

His lyrical paints, ‘untitled’ from the 1970s, represent a writing of powerful movements in which each form is enriched with a brushstroke of soft watercolour lines. His abundant interplay of lines dances across his canvas and offers an impression of depth in which the colours flow into each other. In the work of Jan Voss you experience dynamics created by balance between fragility and movement.
