Hans Boer manages to impart a completely unique personal sense of silence and monumentality to his work. This has everything to do with the way he applies his visual means of expression. His distinct horizontal and vertical surface patterns, provide his paintings with a certain calm motionlessness. And the predominantly earthy and muted colours add to this serenity. The peacefulness of his compositions is subtly challenged by the movement of his brush stroke. (Ankie Boomstra)
