As promised in the previous news item and just in time, here is the first picture of a real Archi-MIni:
For the moment there will be 7 Archi-Minis grouped in three families.
The picture shows you Archi-Mini 3B. This model exists in four differents color combinations.
Mid-October (2017), when I will be back from the "Essentie" exhibition in the Netherlands I will load the site with lots of pictures and videos of all the Archi-Minis and communicate prices and shipping cost.
For those who subscribed to the newsletter there will be a special "for friends only" offer.
In order to make my art affordable for more people I decided to create series of small art objects (10 x 10 cm with a height of less than 10 cm - 10 cm equals almost 4 inches).
These art objects will be very architectural and some of them will be available in different color combinations.
I already found a name for these art objects: The Archi-Minis. I will create them myself from A to Z and they will carry my signature and the BlonK logo burned into the wood.
At the moment that I write this article I already finished creating three Archi-Minis in wood and I just started the painting process (by hand) of the first model. If everything goes as planned I should be able to present you the first Archi-Mini at the end of September (2017).
As you see I haven't run out of ideas yet, that would be a nightmare for any artist!
I wanted to create a very abstract and pure painting that intrigues and attracts you like a magnet. That's how "Strange Violet" was born.
The artwork painted dark violet creates a soft, velours like atmosphere. Only the shadows on the painting reveal that there is a rectangle in the middle.
This three dimensionnal painting or wall object if you prefer, is also strange in a second way as the picuture below will show you.
Another secret is hidden behind the rectangle: a strange construction that creates a lift-off from the background of 5 cm.
Creating this artwork released a lot of new ideas in my head and I will probably make a serie of artworks with hidden sides and ohter visual effects.
I wrote this texte in January while it was freezing outside and impossible to use my workshop. This doesn't mean that I was totally blocked. Instead, inside the house during Winter I fill in applications for future exhibitions, I take care of the administration, make some sketches for new artworks, contact art galeries and write some articles for my the website and Facebook ofcourse. I hope you appreciate.
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".
