Rhododendron

Art, Collage, Contemporary, photograpy

These photo collages are a study of form and an inspiration for sculptural works. I have a fascination for the shapes, size and rhythm of these beautiful rhododendrons. To me they can also be enjoyed just for what they are. One of many important structures of bedding that shape the environment which we live in or spaces we pass through, especially parks. By using these photo’s in a collage manner of working, I was able to move them just the way I wanted. Will be continued….

Cut-out works on paper

Art, Collage, Contemporary, Landscape, works on paper

These cut-out works on paper came as a result of a longing to bring simple forms and shapes together with a more picturesque background, cluster together as one group of forms in an imaginaire landscape. They could be a border of plants or architectural buildings or big stones.

Table / Cloth

As a starting point I took a detail of a heavy tablecloth or carpet as shown often on paintings from 17th century, like a Vermeer for example. I’ve always loved the way in which the heavy carpet on these tables fall down the corner of the table and how it makes a sculptural form on the floor. Also the colorful pattern is important here, but more in a suggestive way that you see what is left over from the detailed design when it folds. The pattern of the tablecloth is more abstract and without figurative details.
