The earth contains many traces of what has been, signs that we tend to overlook, and echoes of a certain temporality. Jaring Lokhorst does not overlook these signs and shows us the speedy changes of the 21st century in a medium known for its eternal character. Lokhorst is known for his paintings of non-places in Amsterdam, such as tire tracks at a construction side and abandoned fences.
In his recent series Rhizome he focuses on a non-hierarchical way of thinking, in which connections are not linear but always moving and interconnected. The creation of the non-place paintings provoked new traces: Lokhorst started painting the landscapes assembled in his studio, made by residues of paint, paper, brushes and paint tubes. Everything seemed to be connected, the paintings, the traces, the micro and the macro.www.jaringlokhorst.nl
