Summer Works

Art, Beeldende Kunst, Contemporary Art, Dutch Contemporain Artist, Painting, works on paper

At the end of last summer 2020, when the temperature went to 30 degrees and more, it was too warm to work in my atelier, which is situated in an old building on the third floor where during the summer it is difficult to keep it cool. Therefore I started to work from my kitchen table at home where it was so much more comfortable. I bought some basic paint and brushes and began to make small works on cardboard packaging. These are the first two of the proces. During the day I saw these shades from street lanterns on the pavement and wanted them to paint them quite brutal on the cardboard canvas. It was also felt the urge to paint again for the and see where it would take me.

August Robin Peters 2019

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.

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.
