"Schoonhoven's work "R 70-1" is characterized by the repitition of a small rectangle that tapers in the third dimension. By playing with the supposedly perfect geometry of the three horizontal zones, the artist adds visual vibrancy to the picture. It gains its energy from the stress field between the filigree approach and the divergence of ever the same." (Dirk Pörschmann, Schoonhoven expert)
"It´s purely technical, what I`m doing here, nothing but pure handiwork. The artistry, the künstlerische , has naturally already occured when I made the design. A lot of thought went into that design, preceded by a process of drawing, and this is the final result. Everything is calculated, everything is evaluated."
Jan Schoonhoven, around 1972, quote from: Jan Schoonhoven, Ex. cat. David Zwirner, New York 2015, p. 39.
