Hans Viets primarily creates paintings using acrylic and sometimes oil paint on canvas or wooden panels. These artworks emerge intuitively by applying many layers over time. The imagery: whether realistic or abstract, reflects an openness and eagerness to experiment, discover and learn while painting. Their goal is to balance playful openness with direct, clear visual information in order to navigate subconscious ideas with paint.
