About

Taken from a declassified military photograph of nuclear testing in the US, Jan Pieter Fokkens uses this photo as a backdrop to reconstructed it from individual hand drawn pixelated scans. Each tiny scan is placed according to its gradation of shading to recreate this scene. This is a limited edition of 10 prints. This print is mounted and framed. Jan Pieter Fokkens Operation Hardtack: Oak, 2019 archival inkjet piezography print 40h x 40w in 101.60h x 101.60w cm JPF033 Jan Pieter Fokkens b. 1979, Dokkum, The Netherlands In his artwork, Jan Pieter Fokkens explores the inconceivable: explosions, far away galaxies and images of war. In recreating the image dot by dot and line by line he provides a deeper understanding of the world around us. The result is provocative, exciting, and beautiful. He lives and works in Chicago I believe there is a deep lineage between modern art and the digital image. In essence there is something foreboding about the way the history of images feeds upon itself. It appears as if reality and images are always competing to see which of the two can be the most unimaginable. My work functions as a bridge between my fascination of reductionist approaches in abstract art and the influence it has on the creation of algorithms that make digital representations of reality. Jan Pieter Fokkens received an M.F.A. from the National University of Ireland Galway Burren College of Art and a B.F.A. from Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, The Netherlands. His work has exhibited in Amsterdam at W139 and Galerie De Praktijk and he is represented by Gallery Victor Armendariz.
