Today I will take you back in time to 2014 to present you an artwork which I created that year. The tittle is "Four To Five". From this period I hardly have any artworks left unsold apart from two artworks that I decided to keep in my own artists collection. A good reason I thought to have a critical look at this piece. My girlfriend always found it a little bit sad with the grey background. Although I do not always take her critics in account, this time (even when it is not easy to admit), I have to give her right.
So I found it was time to revisit and refresh this artwork. Time's up for the dull grey background, let's make things more positive! Grey has become Titan white, turquoise became dark green and magenta was turned into carmin and I also interchanged the position of two items (find out which). There is one thing however that did not change and that it quite rare in the artworld: you can hang it on the wall or place it as a sculpture!
And now let's us have a look at the new "Four To Five":
It took some time to sort and edit all the images that I've shot during my last great solo exhibition in Haguenau, France in September 2020. The final video is a low budget video as I couldn't afford a professionnal video team to shoot. Some of the images shake a little too much, lightning isn't always perfect but I think it gives a good impression of the event that took place in a historical building offering an exhibition space of nearly 200 m² in the heart of the city. Besides the new video hereafter there are many others to view on my YouTube channel (search for Johannes BlonK Geometric Art Videos). Enjoy yourself!
In September 2020 I held my third solo exhibition in the historic heart of Haguenau, 40 km North of Strasbourg in France. The city put at my disposal an exhibition space of 200 m² in a former chapel that was part of the city's hospital until 1983. The building dates from 1757 and is quite particular as it has, in the center, a circular opening to the upperfloors which made it possible for patients to assist to the service from above. On groundlevel it results in a perfect place to stall out my ecological inspired installation with the red ball "Fonte des Glaces".
More than 400 visitors came by to see the exhibition entitled "Entre Art & Architecture" despite the Coronavirus restrictions. There was a peferct marriage between my geometric artworks and this historic building. For those who weren't able to come, no need to cry, here is a small photo impression (you can zoom in by clicking on the pictures). I'm also mounting a small video that I will post on my YouTube channel later.
