A Book by John Seed
(Art writer and art history professor)
Art Historian John Seed, recently published a book titled, “Disruptive Realism” in which Jansen is highlighted on the back cover alongside 43 artists while taking an in-depth look at the works of leading contemporary painters who are challenging and reshaping the tradition of Realism, helping art lovers, collectors, and artists approach and understand this compelling new phenomenon.
“Reveals the contemporary art phenomenon of disrupted realism through the paintings of 43 artists at its core.”
Profoundly shaped by the events, forces, and overflow of today's disjointed, social-media-heavy life, these artists' paintings are “disrupted” stylistically, thematically, or sometimes both.
They allow us to appreciate how art relates to the "super-fast, simultaneous, almost dizzyingly paced scrolling" of our lives.
