Painting on paper – Acryl and collage on heavy paper. 50x65cm. August Robin Peters. February 2022.
During a stay in the early spring of 2021 in Ameland, I made some little drawings of the house I was staying. The holiday house was simple and basically an archetype of what a house is. A space with room for a lot of basic functions. The surroundings are so important when you’re staying on one of these Dutch “waddeneilanden” situated in the north of The Netherlands. It’s almost as if the house is a synonym for the resting mind, so open to everything you see or hear to come in and go out the house, like a breeze, a thought, almost working as a sponge. I tried to captured that feeling in this work. All the windows and see through elements and abstractions make the subject becoming more that just a house in an envirioment. It is a playful way of portraying a house.
