The stories behind the artworks:

 Hang Around:

Johannes BlonK & Hang Around 2015

In 2013 when I started I as an artist I wanted to make mobiles.

The master in this field is ofcourse the american painter and sculpter Alexander Calder who died in 1976. His work is so powerful and original that I frightened me more and more to go into this direction so I put the idea of making mobiles on ice. Out of the question to copy, if I would make mobiles than they should be in the BlonK style, nothing else.

And then I had this idea of a hanging object, not really a mobile but an approach. And here it is finished, my first "Open Space" artwork titled Hang Around.

It can be suspended to the ceiling and used to seperate different parts in a big room or office (kitchen/dining room, office/meeting room). The artwork has two differents sides.

Zen:

I often tend to create with "less" meaning using a minimum of colors and formes, searching for somethng pure. This is often the most difficult te realize. The japanese garden below illustrates exactly what I mean.

With this 3-D painting entitled "Zen" I believe to have created such an atmosphere. It is part of a serie of four paintings finished in January mesuring 62 x 72 cm, the biggest format so far. The painting is the follow-up of a much smaller one that I created last year called "Warm Inside". I possess a very small but practical en economic car (a Renault Twingo) that I use to transport my work. I'm almost in love with this 17 year old car, 240.000 kms on the counter without any big repairs. Therefore I will not make any bigger paintings for the moment so I can keep my Twingo!.

Kohlenheizung:

This artwork has a german title: "Kohlenheizung" which means coal heating. It refers to the intense heat delivered by this type of heating.

The 3-D painting has some some particularities. First of all I applied the black paint (representing the coal) with a palette knife to obtain more thickness and irregularities, a special effect you might say. The fire is represented by a beautiful piece of red leather with skin marks that I sticked with glue on a wooden lamina painted carmine red. Have a look at the close-up picture, it is hard to see the transition.

In 2013 I designed this site as well as my own logo. Creating logos is something I like to do and I think that this painting reflects it very well.

Logo" is the result of a spontanious creation. Like a writer in front of a blank piece op paper looking for the right words, I place objets with different forms on a wooden board until the right composition appears. Once the painting was finished I had the impression to have created a new logo and so the title of the work was found.

When I showed it for the first time in Berlin in September 2015 a dutch guy game to me with a big smile on his face. He said: "you know that this painting looks very much like the logo of my company!". So I cannot say that I've chosen the wrong title.

 

White Shadows:

 

This 3D painting, pure and chic, deserves some explanations.

The three horizontal blades each have a different position with respect to the background. They have been painted pearl with a special iridescent paint. The vertical strips were painted white first in order to receive a final coating of interferent, transparent blue paint. The background is painted with more neutral paint (titanium white).

As you see there are only slight differences and all depends on the way they are exposed to light and the angle under which you look at the painting.

 

Geom Flecken:

Geom Flecken in the making

 

 

In my opinion an artist always has to be on the road to something new. Fortunately I have enough ideas that wake me up early in the morning! One of the latest flashes I had was about letting the paint flow on the painting in a more or less controlled way.

Here is "Geom Flecken" in the making. At the centre of the painting (the right upper corner in the picture) I placed, lifted from the surface, a square divided in four compartments. The pink paint dripped down through a hole and dispersed over the surface underneath.. The finished painting contains 2 pink and 2 grey stains, almost geometric.

Creating an artwork like this is not without risk but life would life be boring without taking any chances!
