About Studio JKL

Interdisciplinary approach

Studio JKL

Jan Koen Lomans is an interdisciplinary visual artist working with ‘nature as a contemplative motive’ for his research and collaboration projects. He depicts this theme in a range of ways, by making it tangible in installations.

To Lomans collaboration is key and a necessity to transform his innovative ideas into artwork and installations. Work that contains his fascination with the cosmos, consciousness and quantum physics and how we look at natural phenomena.

Already from an early age Jan Koen Lomans has wondered about the complexity of nature, how vast and yet invisibly small it is at the same time, and how we relate to the most wonderful natural phenomena. What are mysterious and abstract themes to most, he depicts and renders in various ways, into tangible and comprehensible installations. He does not only offer a sacred place to the natural phenomena, he simultaneously creates a tranquil environment, leaving room for the viewer for wonderment and contemplation.

Jan Koen Lomans (Rotterdam, 1978) studied at the Academy of Arts St. Joost in Breda and Den Bosch and graduated in 2006. He is professor of practice at the University of Wales and currently affiliated with the Technical University Delft for the research and development of a permanent sculpture on the campus (medio 2024 in collaboration with Niels Albers).

Work by Lomans has previously been exhibited at international art fairs as Pulse Miami, Ventura Dubai and Masterly Milano. And by museums as Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Centraal Museum and KAdE Amersfoort, amongst others. His artworks are created on commission or acquired by governmental departments, companies, collectors and private individuals, nationally and internationally.

Lomans lives and works in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
