AMOR VACUI, LOVE OF EMPTINESS


Hans Fohan orders his thoughts and creates a space for the mystery of the void. His work has been reduced to a kernel that says more than the fruit itself. Simplicity, if correctly understood, will then afford the appropriate clarification, profound and elegant. His painterly vision radically opposes the prevailing conviction of what should be painted and how.


His biomorphic forms are subdued explosions of the stain that persistently intrigue but receive no conventional right to direct affection. The stain, the symbol of the 21st century, is now a rarely avoided dialogue. The changing climate and its refugees are central and point out the growth and decline of time. Amor Vacui stands for the silent cry of the person who also profiles himself. The stain emphasizes his presence, demands space and points out his absolute right to exist.
