Hans Boer Biography

The significance of his paintings consists of the material, the writing, the composition, the form, the colour and the skin. The pictorial qualities determine the expressive power of the work, without direct reference to events or objects in visible reality. Sometimes we recognize a figure against a background or we notice elements of landscape. But the objects are painted objects that only exist in the paintings of Hans Boer; the landscapes are painted landscapes, with an expressive significance that exceeds reference. It is not about what it is, it is about what it expresses; not about what we can categorize, but about what we can experience.
