Through his meetings and exhibitions, in Belgium, France, England, Norway, Italy, Poland, Luxembourg, Peru; Jan Goris has built a style that is both personal and diverse.
He distinguished himself in several disciplines, including oil painting and stained glass.His work bears witness to a lyrical, contemplative and ethereal abstraction in which he occasionally incorporates figurative elements, like birds and horses.Colors and movements mingle with the pleasure of free interpretation, like an imaginary journey.Bright or diluted, the color medium causes a visual harmony of great sensitivity.
Volcanic or ethereal, the works are there, which speak in pure abstraction. The gaze lingers, plunges into extreme opacities, suddenly picks up the acute note , the tearing, the swaying of impalpable breezes. Violence and tenderness, strength, breath, beauty, calm. A world is revealed, unknown as well as familiar.
The works of Jan Goris let live the whiteness of the canvas. His inspiration wanders, his art catches up with chance and subjects the work of art to a structure flexible enough not to be too apparent.He cultivates two movements: that of a fluid matter that goes away, estuary of a river that is lost in a desert of solid colors, and that of a gesture, that of a shoulder which delivers the curve and elegance of the movement.
We like his “sincerity”. His paintings breathe with breath full of passion, but of an essential passion, of an efflux of life that some mystics would not disavow. This light, this heavenly harmony raises the heart.
Today, in addition to his oil portraits, he is taking up with glass, with its light, the one that passes through him, the one that it retains.
A lyricism that is both abstract and curiously accessible confuses the visitor in search of introspection.
His stained glass windows fascinate, surprise, invite to the inner smile.
Jan Goris stained glass windows are appreciated and admired in city’s Churches as well as in private spaces.
Artist strongly believes that art of stained glass windows has a certain place in contemporary buildings and will have a future in coming centuries. Luminosity and the play of light and color that we always encounter in stained glass windows will always touch and charm people’s eyes and hearts.
