From his studio in the Belgian province of Limburg, Hans Lemmen creates drawings and sculptures that in a deeply philosophical way make the connection between man, time and space.
In his work he connects the things that are close to him with universality. A landscape, for example, is supplemented with electricity pylons, animals talking to people or mythological figures. The landscape carries the history, the figures carry the thinking. By working with the elements that his immediate environment offers him and by building his work layer by layer in an almost ritual way, he lays under his drawing an almost archaeological basis that both conceals and reveals the story.
Hans Lemmen's work is regularly presented in a museum format. It was also selected in 2009 by Jan Hoet for his farewell exhibition Colossal in Osnabrück / Kalkriese (D).
