The stories behind the artworks:
This 3-D wall assembly alludes to the freshness of the vegetation characteristic for this period of the year.
The young grass in the meadows, wheat growing in the fields and new leaves on the trees unfolded recently.
This assembly also represents the typical landscape of the country were I was born, the Netherlands. You will never forget these ever green meadows mostly seperated by small canals even if you live abroad for a long time already. You can travel in the crowded part of the country (Randstad) between the big cities and suddenly find this landscape on your right and left with cows and windmills of course!
If you stand straight in front of this artwork it may look quite simple.
Just four white lines, four coloured stripes, black stripes with grey all around. In fact the work is more complex. The four white lines are seperated. At the bottom they are engraved in the wood and painted white the upper part of the lines are 4 little white sticks at different distances from the background. I also discretely broke the symmetry by placing one of the black pieces with the small side against the background.
I had a lot of fun making "Lineas Blancas" and I hope you like it. Your comments are welcome.
Tribute to Brauerei Glücklich!
This assembly is titled Brauerei Glücklich the name of a german brewery near Aachen.
On our way back home from holidays we decided to drive away from the motorway in order to discover more. We halted in the village of Hemsterheiden to drink a beer in a 'biergarten'. Never before I tasted such a great beer! The very friendly waitress told me that the beer was called Glücklich (happy) and that the brewery was very close and that it could be visited.
We decided to have a look which was not a mistake. The guide explained everthing in a very pleasant way with a lot of humour almost 'carnavaleque'. The tour ended with a beer tasting session where we could taste four beers for free. We spent an unforgetable afternoon here.
Thank you Brauerei Glücklich, Danke!
This artwork is not a scaled model of a factory.
It is a spontanious creation. I randomly placed objects with different forms on a board until I estime that there is a certain balance. Everyone is allowed to see what he wants. When the work was finished I imagined that it could be some kind of distribution site where liquids are stocked in in reservoirs and transport them from here through pipelines. That's why I gave it the title "Distribution". Perhaps you noticed the allusion to the famous shoes with red soles and heels by Christian Louboutin (www.christianlouboutin.com). Yes, I wear them quite often!
Did you ever hear of ZZ Top?
Let me help you to remember: basic but captivating base line, long beards, customized car, beautiful women and the hit "Gimme all your lovin'".
