Jan van Eden - large size paintings
Paradise


"Paradise series"
Artemis the goddess of the hunt reigns over a supreme jungle in which tigers, snakes and birds are unaware of their own splendid existence. Human abstraction is here projected over the reality of nature. References to the lost paradise run parallel to the problematics of the environment with the cutting of the rainforest and the disappearance of the habitat of  large cats and other animal species. But foremost the artist confronts with this theme his personal nostalgia for the nature of Africa and Brasil where he resided so many years.
