Framed Works for Artist Support Pledge

Art, Collage, Contemporary Art, Painting, Paper Art, Small paintings

I started to make these framed works in the late winter of 2020, when pandemie still ruled the world and initiatives to put artists in the spotlight came across, such as artist support pledge. The plan was simple. Make an artwork to sell and share it on social media by using the hash-tack #artistsupportpledge. Which I did on my instagram account and sold 5 works. The price has to be under 200,- and if you sell for 1000,- in total, you pledge to buy another artwork of one of your colleagues. This was all to support artists in the time when every gallery was closed and there was no other way to exhibit your art. You can all read about it on www.artistsupportpledge.com

The compositions were a real experiment for me to work with. It was such a simple subject by using a packaging box from cardboard, which I unfold to make it as a canvas and use the rest pieces cardboard to make the compositions. Along the way, when im painting and things start to happen, other materials came into the picture. Every work stands on his own by the different appearances, but they come from the same process. That makes me want to continue still, because every little stroke of paint, little added pieces of paper, make such a difference. It changes all the time, till the work is completely balanced for me.

These framed works come in a wooden frame with glare-free glass and are friendly priced 150,- euro (inc. vat) The frame (20x28cm or 21x30cm) comes in natural wood, white or black and is included in the price.
