FINAL DESTINATION

SEPTEMBER 2022

I would like to share some amazing news with you… At this moment my ‘Multicultural' installation is part of the 'Birds in Art' exhibition in the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, USA. It’s amazing to see it on display in such a beautiful museum. I feel blessed that 'Multicultural' is part of this exhibition, that my work was used for the invitation and also to see how the Museum integrated my work in their kids education program. But it became even better… The Woodson Art Museum decided to add my whole installation to their permanent collection. Amazing isn’t it!

 

A question I already got was if the ‘Multicultural' project will now come to an end. Well, the answer is no. In the past years many ‘Multicultural' birds spread their wings and left the ‘skyscraper'. They took flight to many places on earth. From Japan to Alaska. With them they spread the story that they are part of a multicultural society. A society that I had imagined by colored birds, from all kind of countries and in all individual tonalities. They live together in perfect harmony. It is an idealized image, a utopian world and it would be nice if the world will look like this. That we all live together in perfect harmony, with respect for each other.

And when a bird moved out and a birdhouse came for rent, a new bird could move in. Not the same birds. Because just like you and me and every body else is unique, also each bird stayed unique. 

 

I really like the idea that so many birds had now found such a welcome home and a permanent place to live. Now people can enjoy all 40 houses. And in my opinion it is the most impressive way. At a glance you can see the story behind it and by reading only the title, almost no explanation is needed.

 

But the birdhouses are part of my 'Multicultural project’ and because of this, it is possible that I will make new birdhouses in the future.

On this way the story will continue and the important message behind it will be spread over the world. But this will be something for the future… I now enjoy the beautiful thought a flock of birds found a safe place to roost.

COLLABORATION WITH ARTRIGIN ART GALLERY

AUGUST 2022

Eight of my limited editions are on their way to Taiwan. The reason for this is a new collaboration with ARTrigin Art Gallery.  
ARTrigin isn’t just another art gallery. Their main core is sustainability. They cooperate with artist who are concerned with society or environmental issues. They feel connected with my work and asked for a collaboration.
I really like their different way of thinking, their goals and the way they try to reach them. It ended up in a collaboration. In September (1-15) ARTrigin will first show my limited editions at 'ESG ART SHOW' in Taipei International Convention Center (TICC). 
In the beginning of next year also a few of my original paintings will go to Taiwan for upcoming Art events. What a nice thought that ARTrigin will connect my work with a new audience and my work will be used to draw attention to social, environmental and human rights issues.

BUY A LIMITED EDITION AND HELP THE PEOPLE IN UKRAINE

APRIL 2022

My painting ‘Protection’ pays attention to the terrible situation in Ukraine.

Because several people asked me if there will become a limited edition of this painting, I decided to make it available.

But I found it also a nice thought when this painting really can help the innocent victims of this war.

Therefore, 50% of the proceeds of every limited edition will be donated to the International Red Cross. The donations will help this humanitarian organization to provide water, food, shelter and medical supplies to those who need it most, both in Ukraine and bordering countries.

FINALLY MOVED

January 2020

There is still a lot to do (especially on the outside) but after a long period of construction work I could finally move in and enjoy this fantastic place to live. 
My new atelier/gallery is in the back of the house. There is enough space to show my work, the light comes from all sides through the upper windows, and the roof is so high that it’s perfect to make large paintings. Soon I will officially start working here. The blank canvas is already on the easel…

NEW PLACE TO WORK - update

December 2018

Many people ask me how everything is going with my new studio/gallery/house. So here is a little update.It is surrounded by a typical Dutch landscape with green meadows and grazing cows and sheep. To blend in the landscape, the architecture is inspired by a Dutch farmhouse with modern elements and a lot of glass. My new studio is build like a typical hay barrack. These constructions were very common in the Netherlands and were/are used for storing hay on a farm. On the outside the building is almost finished, on the inside there’s still a lot to do. So it will take some time before I can work and live on this beautiful place. Probably next summer…; I can hardly wait :)

NEW PLACE TO WORK

December 2017

Maybe this is a very strange picture, but it makes me very happy. Because this will become my new place to work.
After a long time of preparations, the building is finally started. It will take a while before I can start painting in this new atelier. But in the end of next year, I hope to work overhere and enjoy the wide view over a typical Dutch landscape. I’m really looking forward to it…
