During the past months I made a selection of 100 photos that I will use as footage for a new series of “creature” drawings. Now based on photos especially made for it, instead of brainless cutting in existing photos.
Since I don’t have a drivers license anymore, as a consequence of health issues, I focus on boats instead of cars now. Although it is totally unreachable, the child in me needs a goal. For example this ship is from the Dutch rescue brigade. It is very safe, can go upside down and turns back, it is waterproof, has a pretty large cabin I think. Perhaps even a fast internet connection via satellite.
Virtual & Realistic, ‘VRc’, little sister of ‘VR’, a module that’s supposed to repeat signals in the lower air regions on the most difficult places. With its three legs it stands super stable on every spot. The quasi working antenna should receive and forward the signals of the other modules: ESO, ESE, ESR and ESS.

Total harmony and the different worlds merge to one environment, one that should expand, and on and on. Embracing all the different talents. It means a more than just the sum of the different parts. Far beyond everything.
A concrete sculpture made at school as part of the final exams. Theme is life. It is pretty heavy – the weight 🙂 – 55,2 kg – more info in the post itself. In which information about my education and modest career.
One of my first paintings that I know about. School year ’85/’86, age 14.
This time the concrete mass leans obviously on the yellow block which means that an enormous weight leans on the yellow block, that… [read further]
Results of what I had in mind to do with the paper creatures (2009) ten years ago. I was out of photos to cut.
Made during a stay in a hospital that was still located in the center of The Hague. The purpose was to make material that I could transform on the computer later, once home. It never came to that. The paper on which the figures are glued has the size A5, 148 x 210 mm. Soon I will complete the series as I meant to, modify the cutouts, another 10 years project!

Explanation in the post paper creatures (2009)
Some material I found while cleaning up my workspace. Practically all my work has finally been mapped. Although I won’t remember a lot.
Concrete always comes back in my work, one day or the other. From these items I have no specifications, nor a clue of where they are, like so many items.
These drawings are made from thick paper, ecoline, pencils, other color materials etc. Spring 2004 Utrecht. Just discovered them in a box. 15 years ago.
The merging of something heavy and massive and something much more vulnerable. Gives it the shelter it needs, without a carrier it would be lost. One by the grace of the other.
