Showing 'Flowers, Relationships & Nude'
Different projects meet in this window.
First of all I have been working on a series of FLOWERS.
Participating at the group show FLOWERS currently shown at SHOWstudio ( London by Nick Knight), I dived into all kinds of flowery forms.
Inspired by the famous pictures of Robert Mapplethorpe ( 1946- 1989) I started painting lily's. From a rather realistic approach I went towards a more intuitive way of working. Discovering patterns within my lines and brushstrokes reminding me of growth, fertility and birth, I designed my personal bouquet. To guide the viewer's eye a layer of detailing is added offering a sense of calmness.The black backgrounds define a clear silhouette and reinforces this stillness.
By Ties Schenk (cinematographer & film director) I was asked to create illustrations depicting love relationships in a crisis. Couples who are finding themselves in a situation of ' Should I stay, or should I go?'. The black & white drawings are part of this project.
Last but not least:
A nude in motion, to connect it all. Un-commissioned and simply created for the love of drawing human forms in motion. An ongoing subject within my work.
All drawings are available for sale.
Studio visits are easily arranged through an appointment below.
