Exhibition Bookshop Dominicanen

Love this artistic shot made by Jonas Plöger who came over from Düsseldorf to meet up and visit my exhibition in the former Dominican Church which is now Bookshop Dominicanen in Maastricht.

Joseph Roth, sign of the times - Joseph Roth, teken van de tijd

De Bedachtzamen (The Thoughtful) is the name of a collective of writers and their homonymous blog. They consider the themes of time and melancholy as their driving force and write about painting, poetry, music and literature; pre-eminently forms of expression in which time and melancholy constantly seep through, according to their manifesto.
For a new blog contribution, an article about Joseph Roth, they asked me if they could use one of my portrait drawings of Joseph Roth. If you're able to read Dutch or are satisfied to use an online translation service, you can read the article "Joseph Roth, sign of the times" here.

De Bedachtzamen is de naam van een schrijverscollectief en hun gelijknamige blog. Zij beschouwen de thema’s tijd en melancholie als hun stuwende kracht en schrijven over schilderkunst, poëzie, muziek en literatuur; bij uitstek uitingsvormen waar tijd en melancholie voortdurend in doorsijpelen, aldus hun manifest.
Voor een nieuwe blogbijdrage, een artikel over Joseph Roth, benaderden zij mij met de vraag of zij een van mijn portrettekeningen van Joseph Roth mochten gebruiken. Lees hier het mooie artikel "Joseph Roth, teken van de tijd".

Exhibition Hanging Bookshop Dominicanen

"Hanging around" on a Saturday evening ...

Short film I made of the interior of former church and now Bookshop Dominicanen in Maastricht just after I had completed the hanging of the works on display at my exhibition there. It was quite an experience to stand in this beautiful building all alone on a Saturday evening after closing time.

From 26 August to 13 October I will be exhibiting in the beautiful setting of Bookshop Dominicanen in Maastricht, known as one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world. During that period ten of my paintings, portraits, will be hanging in the priest's chancel of the former Dominican Church. The title of the exhibition is "Recognisability - Distortion - Abstraction". If you are in the area and interested, then you are of course very welcome to go and see!

Beetje "rondhangen" op een zaterdagavond ...

Korte film van het interieur van de voormalige Dominicanerkerk - nu Boekhandel Dominicanen - in Maastricht, net nadat ik de ophanging van de werken voor mijn tentoonstelling daar had voltooid. Het was een bijzondere ervaring om na sluitingstijd op een zaterdagavond alleen in dit prachtige gebouw te staan.

Van 26 augustus t/m 13 oktober exposeer ik in de mooie setting van Boekhandel Dominicanen te Maastricht. Er hangen dan een tiental van mijn schilderijen, in dit geval portretten, in het priesterkoor van de voormalige Dominicanerkerk. De titel van de expositie is "Herkenbaarheid - Vervorming - Abstractie". Mocht je in de buurt zijn en interesse hebben, dan ben je natuurlijk zeer welkom om te gaan kijken!

Inky Animals on Hund und Kunst



Artist Petra Hartl from Vienna runs an extensive and interesting blog titled ‘Hund und Kunst’, dedicated to dogs and/in art. My recent ink drawings of dogs and other animals drew her attention and after checking out more of my work she did a feature of it on her blog, titled ‘Inky Animals’. I'm very pleased with the view she takes on it and the effort she did to step into my work and describe it in such a poetic way.

Inky Animals on iGNANT



My ‘Inky Animals’ series has been featured on iGNANT.

‘Inky Animals’ is an ongoing series of expressive ink-drawings aimed at catching form, expression and movement of animals with bold and minimal appliance of ink. They are all drawn/painted with wayward twigs, feathers, leafs and other unconventional drawing tools which compared to conventional drawing tools like fountain pen or brush leaves far less control over the flow of the ink, leading to a broad variation in the thickness of lines and also the occasional blob of ink.

iGNANT is an award-winning online magazine featuring the finest in art, design, photography and architecture.
