Dutch blue

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

Changes

People ask me a lot;  Did you change after the event? Does your art change?

Well, I used to be an evening person, now I’m a whole day person.

Poetry in motion

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.

Dreaming of the garden

Drawing, a love story.

I always start my day with a drawing, like  a morning meditation. It flows out of what was during the night and surprises me during the day.

I don’t necessarily use those as outlines for future paintings, they just stand on their own. No intention for style, beauty or composition, just impressions.

I will post some of them in the next weeks. # 01/26/2016, cloudsp1340130

For…

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
I’m here
FOREVER IN YOUR ARMS
