Hans van Vroonhoven | Emotional Universe
This colorful lithograph was created for the Dutch Museum of Lithography by artist Hans van Vroonhoven in 2005.
“The insignificance of man, who is unaware of the immeasurable forces that are in motion around him.” This is how the central theme in the work of Hans van Vroonhoven can be described. The artist puts almost surrealistic landscapes as a burst of colors on wooden panels. He uses a mixed technique: acrylic, conté, wax crayon and pastel, but also cast iron, ceramics and other materials.
Hans van Vroonhoven received his training at the Academy for Industrial Design in Eindhoven. Lines of inspiration are, on the one hand, the craftsmanship of the Middle Ages (think of the Book of Hours with colorful miniatures and the allegorical scenes of Hieronymus Bosch) and, on the other hand, the work of surrealists such as Joan Miró.
