Jan van Lokhorst. The colors and lines are intuitive and emotionally chosen and you can also speak of a great degree of expression in his paintings. Van Lokhorst is an expressionist painter, Pur a sang. He likes the material, the paint, often straight from the tube, with a palette knife or with surrendered hands.

The paintings generally come from abstraction. Large areas of color are installed first. When the composition and the coloring game give

birth, the drawing is finished. Then begins the process of removal and overpainting. As long as the painting likes and is finished. The expressionism "(abstract) of Willem de Kooning, but also artists of

COBRA Karel Appel, Asger Jurn and Kees van Bohemia have had a great influence on the work of Jan van Lokhorst. However, his work is lyrischer. It is even so that he can hear music from within while painting. In addition, improvisation, it is always changing, as long as the feeling is good, important. The "Painting yourself in the painting". Jan van Lokhorst therefore has a great affinity with music and feels a connection with the musicians who do this, which is reflected in his paintings. After a period of rather abstract work with "figure / composition" as subject, in recent years

more and more human figures, musicians and especially wild animals could be recognized in the paintings. In Jan van Lokhorst's work of the past 35 years, there is always an interplay between abstraction and figuration (man and animal) to be seen.
