About VanOs -

I am a Dutch-born artist based in South Orange, New Jersey, 20 miles from New York City. In my work I abstractly explore migration, the relationship between the surface of the earth, waterways and coastlines, and the trails created by people, animals, birds and insects who use these lines as travel routes. I am fascinated by how these interactions impact the traveler's path and identity. Hope you enjoy the work.

I create textured two and three dimensional mapscapes with gesso, sand and paint, metal, glass and wood, as well as various objects. The pieces abstractly tell the story of a person, or a group of people, or an archetype.I have developed a language of visual elements I associate with life's journeys. Graphically, these elements evoke maps, geography and transportation. Symbolically, they relate to our psyche, milestones and lessons learned along the way. As we travel, we come across opportunities, establish milestones, and collect the gems of lessons learned, which add to our particular journey and give it character. We influence others along their path. Split-second decisions send us scattering left or right, determining all future direction. We move like so many before us, yet each journey is unique.

I studied art at Atelier Hourdé in Paris, at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC (BFA) and at the Art Students League in New York. I have solo and group shows in the United States and in Germany. Thanks for visiting my page.
