Series of drawings – COINCIDENCES
The Coincidences is a series of drawings. A world of fairy-tale landscapes, unusual forms, transformed fields, and sky. Clouds that are not clouds, fields that are not fields. Full of details, precisely drawn with a calligraphic pen and brush. Drawn with precision, as we write letters – each character, each line is consciously marked on the paper.
An imaginary, unreal enchanted landscape. The whole series of drawings is a dream landscape, imaginary, designed, and created by the artist. Full of details. Full of plastic spaces, which, although drawn with black lines on a white background, create a rug of colorful, lush ornaments.
Black and white landscapes
Jan Astner is a color painter. He loves intense, bright colors, and plays with their combinations and variety of forms. It contrasts and weaves them into charming and unpretentiously intense, unique ranges. Because nature is very rich and very colorful. In a series of drawings, The Coincidences, Astner translated his approach to color into a drawing. The artist urges us to open the gates to the imagination, to translate a monochrome drawing into a sensual world of colors.
