A year ago from now this work was selected for a new art project in Otterlo, called galerie2020. Each month a different work is on display from a different artist. 12 months, 12 artists. For me the honour to do the the kick-off on 31 december 2019 to be the first on display during the month of January 2020. The vitrine galerie project is curated by Marian Mijnhardt and can be followed on http://www.galerie2020.nl
During the month of January 2020 several visitors came by to look at my work.
‘The Gift’ is a landscape mostly made of wood in combination with a piece of lost driftwoord which I found on the Lido in Venice, some years earlier. A picture I took in the national park The Everglades in Florida USA inspired me and was the starting point for this composition. Other materials I used are eco-line, acryl-paint and lacquer, green tule and an old coaster to make this composition. To me it represents the reminiscence of different places that you visit during traveling and about making connections between those very different parts of the world. It is about dreaming a world and how you can make your own interpretation of a composed world and reality you have actually seen. In this case a travel to Venice and Florida ended up in a landscape with a more Asian feel to it. To me that is ‘The Gift’
Later that year the work was sold and has found a new home where it is appreciated very much.

This little piece originally started as a water-colour experiment somewhere in 2015. Last year I started to work with unfinished pieces and tried to re-arrange the composition by tearing, cutting, adding all sorts of paper. To me it was kind of meditative to work on something completely different and very satisfying to work towards a defined and definitive form. I called it Atlantis. if you want you can see a hand rising from the water.

It’s summer and the sun is brighter then ever, I made a short video about it. Just lay down in the grass and look above you. ( Music fragment from Areal – Kate Bush )
