Artist Hans Paus
The Dutch artist Hans Paus (1959) is a passionate modern artist.
The ancient landscape of his native soil, the region Twente, is, along with the impressions of his travels, a great source of inspiration.
His palette-knife paintings unveil a neo-impressionistic style.
He developed a recognizable style in which the principal aim is to catch and intensify atmosphere in light and colour.
Hans Paus gets as much as possible out of his themes and gives a contemporary twist to the traditional impressionistic methodology using sparkling, vivid colours and efficient light-effects to provide a pictorial spectacle.
Although painted in thick layers and in a “wet in wet” technique, the artist succeeds in giving the impression of a smooth painting.
During the process the artist strays from reality gradually but the abstractions are never so far carried through that they cause a break between the original source and the new created image.
The art of Hans Paus is characterized by his striving for poetic impressions.
Optimism and “lust for life” are keywords in his works.
Hans Paus’s works have been included in exhibitions in many countries.
His original paintings and limited editions are sold all over the world.
