paper creatures (2009)

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!

drawings, early 2004

These drawings are made from thick paper, ecoline, pencils, other color materials etc. Spring 2004 Utrecht. Just discovered them in a box. Did I really drew this out of my hand? And second, can I go on with it? Will have to learn the techniques again and better. This work is from 15 years ago!!

citysnaps 2 (live)

This post is called ‘live’ because new images will be added now and then during the coming weeks. The city from which I take photos is The Hague. Perhaps also some Leiden in the future, which is actually a bit confusing.

butterfly invaders

A study from late 2017 till now, May 2019. I felt challenged to come with the best I could. The client means so much to me that only the best of the best was permitted. It was a different experience to paint on assignment, more or less. So I had to learn to paint again. Now the work hád to be good for the first time. In total I made 12 paintings so far, accidentally. Photos of all these paintings can be viewed in the archive now.

electric receptacle

“Very useful creation” The cigar remnants flow into the bin almost automatically. The goal is not to give the fine dust the chance to drift over the table and through the air anymore.

illuminated incense holder

A usb led lamp with the possibility to burn incense. The top of the wooden box is a piece of a tile including steel profiles that are used to finish the corners of tiles – eg. in a bathroom. The smoke of incense is something I can look for hours. With the leds on top of the construction it is even more fun while the smoke is illuminated from below.

salon table

Finally this project is finished. Took me half a year. In the small space I work there was hardly space to finish it. I became gloomy every time I saw the half finished building materials. Never will work like this again. Space, rather room to work first.

citysnaps (april 2019)

Hiking on the bike through the city and try to capture nice views. 27/04 Since I make these citysnaps I realize that the light conditions like these weeks this April were pretty rare. Dark clouds and sunny openings in between. Have to make some kind of weather station to know when to go hiking.

green light for the night

Thanks to LED light bulbs and the little heat they emit it is possible now to create all kinds of lamps that would normally go burn when a regular light bulb has been used. Earlier in the timeline are more examples. But because of this risk factor I will fist think it over before constructing new lamps.

Empty Space Receptacle ESR 3

Emptiness – an empty space, spatially. The question is whether something swims through it is an entity or nothing. If not, the space is still empty and am I a fool, creating things that are nothing and the space remains empty.
