The opening exhibition of the Beekman Foundation in Connecticut consist of 25 Years of painting by Jan beekman, Artist and founder of the Foundation. Jan’s oeuvre on display is build-up around some key elements omnipresent around his former studio. There are the ‘Liches’ and ‘leafs’ Series, ‘woods and rocks’ formations series. The stars at night filling the sky raised other questions, more philosophical and resulted in the painting ‘Are We Alone?’ . Beside these natural elements Jan Beekman painted also a “Global Warning” about climate change and the political unwillingness to do something about it.

Living by the pace of nature Jan Beekman meticulous observes the rhythm of life , season by season, to discover the slow emerging beauty of its offsprings. Jan Beekman observes also men, disruptive to the natural habitacle, and conclude that nature has to undergo itself as a fear enemy. The impersonalisation of the disruptor is an honor given to ‘Human Mankind’. We never think about nature as being an intrusive element, of course not. Although, nature is in counterpart a fear enemy to the human being concealed in itself.

The oeuvre of Jan Beekman captures very well this ‘precarious balance‘ between an insane cohabitation of the living things. Brought to the viewer in any dimension we can handle, together with a message of hoop in ‘Humanity’ and a request to all of us not to be self destructive.
