“My sculptures are about the quest for pure form. In every sculpture I pursue the connection with the essence of beauty. For me, beauty is a gateway to the sacred, the state of formlessness, which shines through every form”.

 

 

 

“Jan van der Laan is without doubt the most talented sculptor I have met during the last twenty years in my sculpture classes. Jan van der Laan’s art is a unique synthesis between natural, organic forms and geometric abstraction. In his sculptures I recognize my own quest for pure form. I am a great fan of his work and in each of his sculptures I see the desire for the almost unattainable ideal, and that is the creation of beauty in its most pure form”.
