Australian artist Jack Vanzet explores paint and colour through flowing abstractions that treat individual brush marks as figures in their own right. The artist’s works often look like close-ups or details of a larger artwork.
Vanzet’s dreamy abstracts celebrate the materiality of paint and the act of painting itself – each work seems to represent a moment in time where the artist’s hand blended with the medium, a melding of materials and focuses. I love the different colour combinations that the artist uses as well – Vanzet often combines rich, saturated colours like pink, brown, or gold with black or dark grey, creating an opulent look for each of his paintings.
The nature of Vanzet’s works – their beckoning for the viewer’s own projections and imagined images – makes them well-suited for product designs and collaborations, and the artist’s portfolio also holds many examples of this type of work.
