MAKER OF MULTIDIMENSIONAL SCULPTURES
SCULPTOR, IN THE TRADITIONAL SENSE OF THE WORD. FROM HIS TWELFTH YEAR TRADITIONALLY TRAINED BY HIS GRANDFATHER, A GIFTED CABINETMAKER, AND MOVED UP FROM “JOURNEYMAN” TO “MASTER”.
With this knowledge he has acquired “on wood” he then broadened his scope to stone as a material kind. His craft background, combined with theoretical education and a search for the working methods and technique of famous sculptors of the renaissance (Michelangelo!), has made him the artist he is today.
Jan-Carel seeks with its distinctive abstract and organic objects to create a bridge between nature, science and craftsmanship, with references to both the physical and psychological environment and experience.
For him, multidimensional work, is creating 3D sculptures with a fourth dimension. This fourth element he ads is the time(spacetime). This (basically for us humans, not observable) dimension he tries to emphasize. Within his work he always tries to refer to past, present and future and society to show and feel that everything and everyone continues evolve. He self, sees this as a constant wave of energy that flows continuously through the society, an eternal force that takes care of the evolution.
HIS INNER DRIVE TO CREATE IS ANCHORED IN THIS EXISTENTIAL LAW:
A QUEST THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME.

The Multi-Dimensionalism includes a wide understanding that can be traced back to the simple translation of the word itself. To differentiate the multiple dimensions. Some people say there are three dimensions, others say there’re four and still others claiming there are even 12 dimensions. MD includes 4 dimensions;
In other words space time.
We live in a world in which we can visualize three physical dimensions. The fourth dimension we can only argue. The philosophy of my art is based on this science. A multi-dimensional work consists of at least one of the following characteristics:
