Recent works have seen Rene Jansens exploration of spatial properties transmute from low relief sculptures to encompass three dimensions.

In tandem with this shift the artists thought has moved from musings on the invisible forces inhering in space to the exploration of potential other worlds beyond earth.

Pure geometric forms bear no resemblance to earthly matter, but for the artist they are grounded in some aspect of reality.

We see translucent lucite laid over industrial metals,neutralising their harsher appearance. Jansen has worked the materials into a seemless, clean veneer, giving them the appearance of delicate machine-made industrial parts-the only trace of the artists hand is in the smoky, ethereal reflections which alter as light moves across the sculptures surface.

The artists strength is in his ability to constrain the work to elemental forms while playing on the opposing qualities of materials, generating cool yet striking works.
