The Inspiration for the “Dutch blue” series comes from the artistry of the Dutch tiles made throughout the centuries. It’s a contemporary approach on the designs, color and composition of earthenware and porcelain. All works are ink on watercolour paper. This series is on display throughout July 2018 in Gallery 505 in Frederick. Opening, Saturday July 7 5-9PM
I have the pleasure of meeting some poets over the years, they all became good friends. I think poets can relate the agony and ecstasy of artistry. This relationship helped me exploring my drawings and ideas in a different and new way.
The drawing ” Thinking in space” is an automatic writing drawing/poem. Ink and pastel.
Last year we lost a lot of people, not only famous, but also close friends, parents and children, I was almost gone. Thanks to an unselfish act of a boy called Jacob I got saved. It’s difficult to comprehend. From now on my paintings will bare the initial J for Jacob(Jake) because he will be a part of me for the rest of my life.
I wrote some sort of poem for all the parents who lost their child, especially for Jacob and for Claude the son of a very good friend that passed away last year.
A SPACE A PLACE
I cant let go
IMPOSSIBLE TO COMPREHEND
I wont let go
UNBEARABLE TO ENDURE
Impossible to let go
A CLOSED DOOR
Never let it go
AN EMPTY ROOM
FOREVER IN YOUR ARMS
