The shapes and colors that Jacob van Loon puts on paper are simply explosive. His Lead Shot Stars Series (influenced by colorful explosives) challenges the perfectionism of straight-lined geometric patterns with the unpredictability of watercolor. Jacob’s draws countless lines and edges with careful order and methodical attention to detail. Then he fills them in with vivid watercolors, unafraid to let them spill outside the lines or cause a bit of chaos over his neat designs. The abstract balance between order and a little bit of mayhem is what really creates sparks on the page!
