abstract art

Successful exhibition in The Netherlands

BlonK and Lollipop 2018, Bolsward, NL

 

 

Again I had the opportunity to show my artworks in another high quality exhibition dedicated to abstract geometric art.

 

It was held at a very special location, a church located in Bolsward in the Northern province Fryslân in the Netherlands. This church was severly damaged due to a fire in 1980. Except for one door everything made out of wood was transformed into ashes. Demolition was avoided and the remains of the church received a glass roof as you can see in the picture. Lightning was fantastic and everchanging.

 

The exhibition attracted an important number of geometric art lovers and it really was a success for me as an artist.

 

 

 

 

There are now 12 Archi-Minis to chose from!

And here they are as promised, the new Archi-Minis, placed on a beautiful support made of ash wood they look even more better.

While "upgrading" these small architectural art objects I created 5 new. In total the collection counts 12 differents models now. I would say choice enough, pick one out!

I created every Archi-Mini by hand which means that every Archi-Mini is practically unique although they are made in serie (limited edition). Each copy carries my signature and the branded BlonK-logo.

As the new Archi-Minis with the wooden support look quite different today, I had to take new pictures of the existing models which took me more than two days including the editing work. As from today you can find all the members of the Archi-Mini family on this web site by clicking on: Archi-Mini Collection.

You see and hear from me again shortly through a video presentation.

Keep coming back, buy art and thanks for your attention.

Cold Outside - Painting Inside

Johannes BlonK (02 2018) painting Archi-Minis

Here I am inside the house comfortably heated and with the radio on (I very offent listen to Radio Caroline, one of the old pirate radiostations from the sixties still broadcasting on the internet). In this room I usually paint all the small parts of my artworks. This time I'm working on 2 new artobjects called Archi-Minis.

Today it's blue, yellow and red day, primary colors day.

As I told you in the previous news item, I decided to improve the presentation of the Archi-Minis by placing them on a wooden support. Nowadays is it quite hard to get quality wood of different essences. In do-it-yourself shops you can forget it! Fortunately I live in a region (Alsace in France) where there are a lot of forests. About 10 km from home I found a sawmill where I ordered some beautiful boards of ash wood that I will use to make these supports.

I'm waiting for a call from the sawmill to pick them up and temperatures outside to go up so I can also work on these supports.

Nice from you to follow what I'm doing. See you next time my friend!

Résultat 3

Welcome! Nice from you to come around again to visit my blog.
This time I would like to explain the realisation of one of my latest artworks "Résultat 3".
 

Etude pour

This "3D painting" or wall object is part of a series in the landscape format, a format I did not explore that much so far. Originally the background of the artwork was painted black (Mars black is the exact color) as the design picture shows. Once it was finished I found the artwork too dark, too sad and that nothing 'happened'.

So I decided to redo the background and paint it Titan white. I also find that it looks better in a vertical position. For those who do not agree with me or for those who like to change once in a while, I created 2 hanging systems at the back. Changing habits stimulate the brain they say.

In a horizontal position you can understand the title of the artwork, 3 divided by 1 makes 3. In french Résultat 3. Et voilà!
See you soon. A bientôt!

 

BlonK goes Instagram

It seems that the use of Facebook, number one of the social media, is declining rapidly. In a way to stay up-to-date with the movement I decided to start using one of the upcoming stars: Instagram. From today I will regularly post images here. Pass the word!

Entering dutch gallery Bos Fine Art

I met a really nice couple of galleryholders in the Netherlands recently: Marianne Bos and Paul Essens from Bos Fine Art. They are specialized in promoting abstract geometric art and own galleries in Lelystad and Utrecht and they also have an internet site through which they sell art.

After this very pleasant and interesting rencontre we decided to work together in the future. This gallery also likes to function as a meeting point for artists in the same field and I think it could be a launching site towards other markets like Scandinavia and Germany.

A click on the image below will bring you to their internet site. You can find me under "Artists".
