About

The earth contains many traces of what has been, signs that we tend to overlook, and echoes of a certain temporality. Jaring Lokhorst does not overlook those signs, and shows us the speedily changes of the 21st century in a medium known by its eternal character. Lokhorst is known for his paintings of non-places in Amsterdam, such as tire tracks at a construction side and abandoned fences.

In his recent series Rhizome he focuses on a non-hierarchical way of thinking, in which connections are not linear but always moving and interconnected. The creation of the non-places paintings provoked new traces: Lokhorst started painting the landscapes assembled in his studio, made by residues of paint, paper, brushes and paint tubes. Everything seemed to be connected, the paintings, the traces, the micro and the macro.

With an expressive use of colour and various enlargements, Lokhorst creates a level of abstraction, and moves away from the seemingly objective representation of reality. His paintings can be placed in the tradition of art and alchemy that focusses on the four elements, the philosopher’s stone and pigments. Lokhorst is a contemporary artist working with this natural philosophy whilst connecting it to our fast contemporary world.
