The desire for the almost unattainable ideal, the creation of beauty in its most pure 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”.
