Laurence Jansen’s work is intrinsic to the movement of paint in order to render imagined reconstructions or interpretations about the movement of humanity. Whether this reflection depicts a narrative of political dynamism or migration on an atomic level, the action of diffusion takes place culturally and physically through an embodiment of the gestural and complex visual language catalogue that painting has to offer. With the potential to capture existential allegories or meta-physical flux, the internal and external forces that Jansen characterises, perform a visual display of how ‘environment’ affects our mental states and the physicality’s of the figurative form.
