• Han Rameckers

    study:1977-1982, Academie voor Toegepaste Kunsten, Maastricht. Experiencing the work of the artist Han Rameckers can only be done by placing it right in the heart of life. The artist’s primary aim seems to be that life in general and his work in particular, should be enjoyed to the full and that we should not lose ourselves to obsessive detailism. Reviewing the works one notices that the work can as easily be a sculpture, painting, reproduction, text, installation or photo. The used materials are almost conventional, in each case simply handcrafted. We overlook the work of a village boy, who be way of the city almost effortlessly travels the globel village. Beside the diversity in format the works offer a great spectrum of conceptuel main points. In general this work aims to please esthetically while it also suggestt referring to important questions of life with a fair amount of malicious playfulness. The way these vital questions are reflected show a critical mind in a happy nature. Above all, it tries to convey the intention that any answer to life’s mysteries will not be revealed here and now. We have to accept this without subcoming to the unbearable lightness of being. Of these heavy themes only the edges, the shiny outside, is shown. The world anno 2002 consists of about 6 bilion worlds, after all. Mathieu Bruls, Januari 2002
