About the work

Orson Oxo Van Beek made a floor lamp that references the obscure objects and silhouettes seen in 15th-century painting, ‘the garden of earthly delights’ by Jheronimus Bosch. Surrealist painters often recognize Bosch as the first modern painter to establish surreal landscapes. The enigmatic architectural sanctuaries seen within the different panels indicate a rich imagination where he visualizes shapes which the spectator is unable to grasp. For ‘Panteom Phantasma’ Orson intends to capture these sculptural forms and translate those to a contemporary floor lamp. The atypical lamp focusses more on the aesthetic value than the functional. Within the body of this shape, neon-like light tubes are morphing out, which emit an atmospherical warm-colored glow. By creating a human-sized lamp, Orson Oxo Van Beek hopes to provide an intriguing piece that enables the viewer to a glimpse of the garden of earthly delights made into an object.
