The stories behind the artworks:

 Leaving Town II:

Leaving Town II © J. BlonK 08 2016Don't you feel the need from time to time to breathe in some fresh air at the countryside? If so this painting might be something for you. It's very pure and simple. To my opinion there is nothing more to add.

The first version of this painting (already sold) is smaller and has less depth. It is part of a series in the landscape format with a line as the main theme. For me it represents the city at the left of the painting and the road that will take us away from this human anthill.

La linea osvaldo cavandoliA person who visited my booth at the art fair in Lyon, France told me that it made him think about the cartoons "La Linea" by Osvaldo Canvandoli. Why not! I did not foresee this but the link is very interesting.

What I like about abstract art is that is offers free interpretation and as a bonus it is often timeless.

Hip To Be Square::

Johannes BlonK & Hip To Be Square 2016This three dimensional painting is quite big and the first out of a series of paintings in the landscape format. It has three squares painted in black-blue that come loose from the background which is something you will not notice from a distance. The left and right squares are also inclined to the top or the bottom at an angle of about 5°.

When I looked for a title to fit the artwork I decided to go for "Hip To Be Square". I don't know if you heard it before but Huey Lewis and the News released a popsong with the same title in 1986 (you can find the clip below).

The song deals with tendancies, with what is 'in' or 'out'. Things that were oldfashioned have become popular again. It can even concern human behaviour (hippies that became yuppies many years later is a very good example).

Let's conclude by saying that squares are really in fashion this week! You need to have some in your home.
