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.
At the same time, his biomorphic expressions refer to the subdued explosions of the stain that stubbornly intrigues but does not have a conventional entitlement to direct affection. The stain, the rarely avoided dialogue, represents the growth and decline of an era. His Amor Vacui stands for the silent call that demands space for the absolute right to exist.
