A photo work with myself as part of the composition. The image is about spaces, to be a part of the space. It is about being part of the environment your in.  Which doesn’t always mean you are being seen. You can also be a mayor part of something but at the same time be in another place.  The head under the curtain emphasizes on concentration of own thoughts.

Is the person looking outside through a window an active element in the room or is he secondary to the room he is part of. What does he see what we can’t or cannot be a part of, only in our imagination.

I called the work Hypo, which is the greek word for under.

The work ( a combination of photo and paint on canvas) is my contribution in a competition for the Christine Award 2018 at Nieuwe Akademie Utrecht.

Which is about making a photo ( work ) which includes yourself in any way or another

Composition with boxes

Several works coming from one composition made with different kind of boxes. From a flat work on paper with paint, through a combination with digital approach into a two dimensional work on paper and a three dimensional work in mixed media, where the actual boxes are placed into a bigger box.

With the digital version I could enter a more graphic and sharper background than possible with paint. Which made me realize the importance of the composition and the scale of the items shown. If you make some parts smaller or bigger, the rest-space-changes and sometimes makes the composition weaker or stronger.

Acryl on paper and board paper and paper tea box ca.60x80cm

Rests-space take an important role, as you can see in the most abstract version painted on wood. The forms become more important and with less details. Beside the fact that they change form and become something on their own.  The originally tea boxes and  other packaging material also become an interesting form to look at. On one hand they are flat and have, at the same time the illusion of a dimensional form. The playing between flat and non flat keeps me occupied and fascinated.

Façade

Art, assemblage, Mixed media, Painting

This serie of works could reflect my state of mind about the last couple of months, after loosing a close relative. It reflects my feeling of isolation when mourning is not shared. The façade of this house has windows but they look either closed or difficult to see through. A door is not seen and can not be entered. The lack of an open door gives this atmosphere a very closed feeling. As if it’s not possible to participate, to enter or to leave. A feeling of left behind. Emotions that are isolated. The locked feeling of a mourning process. fullsizeoutput_43d6fullsizeoutput_43d7fullsizeoutput_43d8
