Message from the artist
”Dear viewers, I welcome you to my colorful world. Please take your time and watch the artworks for a while. Maybe you will discover the themes of the work; most of them are about love and life, city and nature, where the human menagerie dwells as does in dreams. You know dreams are just another reality.” Jacques Tange
Born in Vlissingen, The Netherlands, in 1960, Jacques Tange knew from an early age he wanted to become a professional artist. He was educated at the Academy of Arts in Rotterdam.
Inspired by the illuminated handwritings of the middle ages, he uses his own imagination and humour in present-day themes. The ornamentation and his typical use of bright colours are applied with the use of archetypes and methaphors. Tange is a creator of a world which is as recognisable as it is strange. What is shown to us is a closed world.
The use of intimate, soft light creates a characteristic atmosphere. His works show a well balanced composition which is made both by object and colours. Recognisable themes regulary return in his artistic work about the relationship between man and woman, the urban jungle and the isolation of the human being.
