This installation is made of 25 compositions on cardboard boxes, made between 2020 and 2022. The method of making and the ingredients are the same. The outcome is very different and variable. It made me think of the human D.N.A. How we all are made of the same but differ so much from each other.
A framed composition with three boxesArt, assemblage, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Mixed media, Moderne kunst, Object art, Paper Art
In this work I realized a new composition existing out of individual pieces which are combined together to create a new image. The frame is made of old left-over pieces of wood and combined with new parts.
The frame that is holding the 3 boxes and 1 little one is constructed to accommodate the composition boxes, which are commutable, because you can simply pull them out and change them for another and make your own combination. The shape and design are inspired on fruit and vegetables baskets as you see them presented in markets or grocery stores.
I wanted to emphasize the heritage of the painted boxes which are made of packaging materials coming from the world of consuming.

Different outcomes with all the same packaging boxes from an AH verspakket, de-folded and re-arranged with an exploratory attitude to see what ingredients you can set out to make a painting without narrative.
First series abstract compositions on cardboard packagingArt, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Object art, Painting, Paper Art
A serie of concept painting on cardboard ‘verspakketten’ from a big grocer in the Netherlands. AH! A way to recycle packaging material and to paint on something different than prepared linnen. The concept is that I deconstruct the verspakket box and cut out the four corners which I use as a pattern at random to make an image. it is the combination of the paint and the cardboard that I find very attractive. Often the paint becomes the glue to stick the different collage-like parts to the new surface. And from scratch everything is open for me to decide on. Colour, composition, added materials, strokes fine and rough. The simple effect of paint and colour and the way the elements are making an image.

All is wellArt, assemblage, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Mixed media, Moderne kunst, Object art, Painting
I started this work out of a unrecognasible stain, because of the first painting, which kept coming through, despite off layers of gesso and decided to let it be a starting point for this painting. The shape of an imaginary piece of exotic fruit came to mind. It became somewhat the root of this composition in which I felt it wanted to be flowing and organic. In this painting, paint is combined with collage and drawing, when you look close you can see it containes beads, ripped off cardboard and wooden parts. This work was send to an open call competition for the foundation villa Seurat in Paris. The competition had the theme ‘nature reasserts itself’
Stills from the lost videoArt, assemblage, August Peters, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Mixed media, Moderne kunst, Object art, Photo, Sculpture, Stil Life, Video
These pictures were shot on location, during filming my artworks for the short video ‘Lost in pandemie’ which you can see in the previous blog. Personally, I like the pictures so much that I wanted to show them in a solo blog. Just for the esthetics of the photo’s. To me they both capture the feeling of totally left and lost in a setting and on the other hand, they seems to immerse naturally in the environment of streets, concrete, building waste and other decors of outside settings. Pictures taken in may 2020.
