Co Jansen is a painter of the old school and proud of it.

The Dutch Artist learnt art in the Netherlands and worked as a professional painter in that country before emigrating to New Zealand in 1950.

Although he had to adapt his style of painting in the brighter colors of new Zealand, Mr. Jansen still paints in his traditional style.

Setting up a still life can take 4 to 5 hours. Moving this a little here and that a little there all takes time to get that perfect shape.

His still life's are painted on a background of decaying wood.

For the painter this symbolizes loss of rules and morals in society.
