The monograph Jan Mulder: Paintings and Watercolors 1994-2006 gives the viewer/reader an opportunity to decipher the artist's poetic inspirations firsthand. Shelley, Rilke & Rory Brennan give the artist the opportunity to attempt to make paintings that go beyond the illustrative.
The paintings seen in Jan Mulder: Paintings and Watercolors 1994-2006 at once appear to be entirely abstract before horizon lines and color point toward time, as in the series "Night and Day" and "Tide." From an introduction by Robert C. Morgan: "...Mulder's approach to painting aspires toward abstraction as a vibrant possession of the self, a congealing of contained energy, that relinquishes itself over time."
Jan Mulder: Paintings and Watercolors 1994-2006 includes contributions by Piet Augustijn, Rory Brennan, H.J.A. Hofland, Robert C. Morgan, Dominique Nahas, and Dolf Welling.
