    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.

    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  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.

    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 (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 (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.
