Ten on Ten’s Art
“Many years ago I adopted the nom de brosse “Ten” because it is easier to remember than my Dutch name Jan ten Broeke.
Spoken language is insufficient to negotiate existence and it’s meaning, and therefore, other forms of expression are needed. In my work I aim to be thought provoking, to arouse an inner awareness.

 My paintings  are totally imaginary and deliberately ambiguous, evoking biomorphic and geomorphic phenomena. that are at the origin of existence. When I paint abstract forms appear suggesting shapes and elements that arise in nature, but are not depictions of actual nature. 

I have always been interested in exploring the scientific miracles of the natural universe, especially within the fragile biosphere that envelops Earth.
The paintings of the last decades focus mainly on biomorphic and geomorphic phenomena, evolutionary forces, and the propagational drives that form the basis of our existence.
Ultimately, my mind, my eyes, and my hands are merely instrumental in producing this work. In spite of knowing better, I do frequently experience the sensation that the work is not created by me, but through me. My art has a chance for limited survival, but I know my body does not.”

Ten’s Biographical Information
Ten’s first encounter with notoriety came the day of his birth. His mother would often tell how he entered this world in the wee hours of the morning on Pentecost Sunday (June 8, 1930), while a severe thunderstorm raged and ravaged the countryside. Ten was born a blue baby gasping for air. A thin membranous veil—locally believed to signify the gift of second sight—covered his face. This took place in the isolated, rural area of Marienberg in the province Overijssel in the Netherlands. That very same night, two heifers were struck and killed by lightning within a mile’s distance from the ten Broeke home.

Ten arrived in the United States in 1955 as a young man. While working as a drug designer with some of the greatest minds in organic chemistry, Ten never neglected his career in art. He was an active member of the vibrant, revolutionary art scene that electrified Greenwich Village in the late ‘50s and ‘60s, where he earned the admiration and friendship of many of the scene’s most influential members. Although that dynamic era in art was squelched by profit-driven galleries and mediocrity, Ten has had many domestic and international shows and honors. Ten consistently garners enthusiastic praise for his entirely unique metaphysical imaginings, rendered with perfect technique, brushwork and style.

Throughout his career Jan ten Broeke has been known and recognized by his simple nom de brosse, “Ten”.
Ten resides with his wife in the historical village of East Millstone, NJ, in a Dutch Colonial farmhouse that was built in 1763. They are both highly active in local environmental and historical preservation initiatives. They has two grown daughters: Yannie living in New York City and Diena living with her family in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ.
