Man in a Poetic ‘Alternative Universe’


Bits and pieces, old remnants, junk and ‘beautiful’ scrap; are found and welded together; haphazardly ‘careless’ or carefully planned;

A new world evolves… new machines are invented… and then ‘inhabited’…

Fantastical and playful, and filled with humour… and then there is this almost indescribable ‘something ’… a sadness, a melancholy…?

Certainly human …

  • All of which makes it Poetry.

And, as with most poetic artist, titles are important.


Jan Verschueren plays with the senses, and he plays with words – in a most endearing way!
