an organization of realist and figurative artists from the pacific northwest
Henk Pander’s paintings reflect personal experience, giving form to events he has witnessed throughout his life, where individual experience meets historical time. In an attempt to make visual sense out of contemporary dilemma, he deals with issues such as the passage of time, entropy and loss, in the form of memories of war and childhood, portraits involving aging and personal history, vanitas still lifes, and technology versus the natural world. He has consistently maintained a concern with careful composition, a rich and intimate surface, a quality of atmosphere, and fine drawing.
