Roan van Oort is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Netherlands.
With a strong focus on simplicity and timelessness, he consciously chooses natural materials, characterized by a certain fragility, to discover an emotional power in the essential rawness of the materials. What matters is the power of what we see, and color is a connection to the way we see and experience landscape and nature in all its beautiful forms. The abstract character of the works releases emotions that do not respond to a narrative, but rather arise from associations with intimate experiences and feelings of personal memories – the viewer, due to the lack of a title, is free to interpret what he or she sees.
Working with these raw materials values imperfection and the impermanence of life, respect for nature, and the authenticity of the materials.
