New York Opening launches new chapter for Jansen. image

Marcus Jansen recently returned from New York City after attending a group show opening in conjunction with a book release "Revelations in Reality", curated by Tamara Del Estal and Sana Afsar published by Creative Concept inc. and distributed this summer at most major International art Fairs, including Art Basel Switzerland. The exhibition was well attended with first visitors poring in at 7:00pm.

Revelations in Reality presents a selection of artists whose enigmatic visions respond to issues surrounding the human experience. Broadly composed yet intricately detailed, each artist’s work renders a realistic depiction of the human condition that conveys an atmosphere of personal history, hope and intuitive vision. Presented in a sequence of portraits, scenes, and narratives, Revelations in Reality that tells a story of everyday existence, relationships, and experience. The exhibition captures moments of tranquility, which contrast with uneasy oneiric elements. With works that blend unusual color combinations, and unexpected compositions, this collection of artist works create a magic realist feel. Infinitely variable and full of interest and personality, this theme expresses itself in different ways through the hands of each talented artist. Delightful, diverse and sometimes even daring, these remarkable works will stay with you long after you first view them.

Fort Myers resident and Internationally renowneed artist Marcus Jansen hadn’t been back on his old stomping grounds since 2011. In 1999 he started selling his work on the corner of Prince Street and Broadway in Downtown Manhattan before showing in any Galleries but had his work “Dog House” 108×72″ oil enamels on canvas" demanding center stage in New York this week. Collectors had their first bids in on the painting at opening night. But that’s not all. Jansen will be entering the secondary market after a professional career spanning now over sixteen years where his first showcase was held at Madison Square Garden’s Film and Art Festival in 1999. His first works were recently invited to be included at the prestigious Phillips de Pury International art Auction house in Moscow and Geneva Switzerland in 2014. Jansen was also invited by Professors in Lisbon to show in a an exhibition at the Berardo Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Lisbon and later this year during Art Basel Miami Beach. Dates to be announced.

Jansen spoke to several Lee County residents that attended the opening, all of which got to see Jansen and his work in a New York setting. “It was great to see some Fort Myers people in town that night, it almost felt like a family reunion.” Jansen said.

The Group Exhibition runs until August 4. 2013 at 287 Spring Gallery,at 287 Spring street, New York 10013.
