    Roundism - 02-05-17

     

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

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    The principles of singularity as defined visually by me, put on paper with regard to a view on the harbour of Vlaardingen, a town near Rotterdam, Netherlands.

    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.
