Artist Research: Jan Van Munster

Jan Van Munster is a Dutch minimalist sculptor who shows his work mainly in Germany and the Netherlands. He primarily works with light to display themes of tension and opposition, and to express his understanding and interpretation of life energy. His focus on energy is one of the reasons he works in the light medium due to its active existence as a form of energy.

Ive always been interested in using light as a medium. Some more accessible means of doing this in my current position would be working with colored glass, which is a medium that light can shine through. But when I do have the means, I would love to work with a medium like that that can be so meaningful on its own. There are so many metaphors and symbolic representation behind light, I think it may be one of the most diverse mediums to use in minimalism.
