Jan van Eden

With the title Posing in an unreal world we present Jan van Eden’s first personal exhibition in Barcelona. It’s a selection of oils and acrylics painted between 2006 and 2012.
The show is divided in two series; one is centered on small formats almost exclusively in black and white, with references to the classic star system, contemporary culture and the atmosphere of the 30s. Also, scenes of social criticism based on current topics.
The second series, presented in large formats, color becomes more relevant and shows contemporary scenes with women in the center of the action. On these, van Eden combines the realism of the situations with large brushstrokes that approach him to expressionism.
