    Nude - 07-12-16

     

    A work in which I combined colour saturation with complementary colour schemes. Working with my Indian model always is very rewarding. She has a great dark skin complexion showing all kinds of colours dependant on the lighting and I tried to capture the effect of light breaking on her thighs like light fragmentated through a prisma.

  • Into the light - 15-06-17 Enter the gloom! I wanted to delve into the darkness and bring a woman back into the light. With a little help from my friend Look J.

    Roundism (singularity) - 01-06-17

     

    In this drawing I tried to work out my (artistic) understanding of singularity. I came to see that bending curves to straight structures could symbolize infinity on a piece of paper that is restricted by its very nature.

    Roundism (singularity) - 05-06-17

     

    A pastel version of the graphite pencil drawing 'Roundism (singularity) 01-06-17'. This is a first worked out principle of singularity. By singularity I mean that curves approach straight lines or planes without ever touching them.

    Roundism - 28-04-17

     

    Part of the roundism series, in which I wanted to keep a big part of the body open and indicate and style only a portion of the shades.

    Sans titre - 05-05-17

     

    This one represents Darja Collin, fomer wife of J. Slauerhoff, a great dutch poet and writer of the 1930s. I liked combining circles, rectangulars and triangles in this one.

    Roundism  04-07-17

     

    A continuation of the same image  also used for the pastel drawing 'Into the light - 15-06-17'.  I combined my singularity theory with a little anatomical / proportional distortion.

    Delft - 19-08-17 (sold)

     

    As I came across Delft by bike I saw the 'Nieuwe Kerk' bathing in sunlight and thought it to be a great opportunity to send it to heaven being a Saturnus rocket standing on a launch platform. After all, what are churches good for anyway except as sending out a signal to whatever God you want to believe in?

    Roundism - 29-05-17 (sold)

     

    A pastel version of the graphite pencil drawing 'Roundism - 26-05-17'. I used the primary colours red, yellow and blue to honor 'De Stijl', a dutch art movement that celebrates its 100 birthday this year. Mondriaan was all about moving about planes and lines in his ever search for the perfect composition. I think I will work out the previously described principle of singularity in works to come. By singularity I mean that curves approach straight lines or planes without ever touching them.

    Bettie Page - 28-08-17

     

    Returning to Bettie Page once in a while because her body was so slender and enables me to exploit my style of roundism to the max. In this drawing I tried to keep the forms open as much as possible while the extended lines beyond the forms create new forms, even animals!

    Cubistic nude - 11-11-16

     

    Another model in colour and in straight cubistic planes left open to breathe. I wanted to have the negative space be an integral part of the cubistic parts as well in order to cultivate the necessary unity to obtain.

    The return of the dutch elephants (@ Gouda) - 12-07-17

     

    Some time ago I saw a cloud that perfectly looked like a baby elephant. I got the idea to draw the canal realistally and transcend into a more abstract mid-section (trees in my roundism style) and end in a surrealistic scene, thus combining impressionism, realism, cubism, roundism and surrealism.

    Roundism - 02-05-17

     

    Part of the roundism series. I was fascinated by the squares and round forms I detected in the body.
