UNTITLED (BLACK ON ALMOST WHITE)
Colour, form, space and time are the main elements in the work of Johan Van Oeckel. In search for new compositions he always starts from small sketches based on fragments of real objects, art, architecture, design... Often making formal allusions to abstract modernism, Van Oeckel is interested in 'time' anchored in form and colour, as they can carry a certain time frame or age. How do they become so powerful that they are archetypes for a certain period in art history? How does a new language of forms emerge that in turn can define a possible future of abstract art?
JOHAN VAN OECKEL
Johan Van Oeckel (b.1971) is a Belgian artist living and working in Leuven. In his work, he is in search of 'time' anchored in form and color. Oscillating between color field painting, geometric and conceptual abstraction he offers the viewer a privileged access to an introverted and silent space. Van Oeckel graduated as Master in Fine Arts at Sint-Lukas Brussels.

ArtStar now has a 4 week lead time on all orders. Please note that lead times may change at any point in time due to changes in the COVID-19 pandemic and how it affects our production facilities’ operations. We will do our best to keep all orders running on track. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this ever changing situation.
Once your artwork is made by our printer, it must be allowed to outgas for 24 hours before being framed and/or shipped. ** Please note that we employ professional framers, shippers and handlers on all orders and only handle our prints with white gloves. While occasional damage by USPS or FedEx in transit is out of our control, we are happy to work with you to resolve any damage that does occur. However, damage in transit is relatively rare.
As our prints are custom made to order according to your preferences, all of our prints are final sale and non-returnable. We guarantee the quality of our prints, so if your order was shipped with a defect or arrived damaged, please contact us at email@example.com.
Skip the trip to the framer and let ArtStar do the work with our One Click Framing.
Choose from our high-end white, black or natural frames, or opt for a more modern look by selecting facemounted to thick Plexiglas.
All frames include:
- UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 91% of UV rays.
- Acid-free, archival mats and materials.
- Taped backs to prevent dust from getting into the frame.
- Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame.
- Wire on the back of the frame for easy installation.
- Facemounted works are hung on a metal French cleat. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Extra small and small frames have .75" molding 2" mats, and are 1.2" deep. Medium and large frames have 1" molding, 3" mats and are 2" deep. Mattless frames have a spacer to prevent the print from touching the acrylic.
We do not frame the extra large print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.
ArtStar does not accept returns. Works damaged in transit may be exchanged on a case by case basis within 30 days of arrival.
