Dear Vistor , thanks for your interest in my abstract oils.   All paintings are framed , but the written sizes are the sizes of the paintings itself.

 

Three of the paintings : '  Sissling ',  'Ice-eyes' , and ' Avec les Temps ' are part of the Core Collection of the Museum for modern Art MUSIOM in Amersfoort , the Netherlands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

'EGO EVADERE ' , oil on linen, 110 x 230 cm.

 

'Ego Evadere'  is the first painting of a new serie in which the  contour of my body, or parts of my body , will lead the abstrahation.

 

'Ego Evadere ' will be part of the presentation of Au! , in the Personal Structures Project  at Palazzo Mora , during the Biënnale of Venice 2019.

 

Pure Orange Gold is used as a methaphore for strength and Pure Yellow Gold  as a methaphore for the air that we breath to survive.

 

The theme for the Biennale 2019 is  ' May you live in interesting times '  and the theme in Palazzo Mora is ' Personal Structures Identity '.  Apart from that , this painting is the centre piece of the Au! installation in Palazzo Mora.

 

I started to abstrahize about 30-35  years ago and I used to do  portraits and Lanscapes before. When the invitation for this years Biennale came I immediately thought of a painting like this. A painting in which you can see my abstraction as well as my figurative painting for 35 years ago.  The body you see is my body !  In through size (I am 2 M. tall) .

I am breaking through the abstract barriers I provided myself with over the last 30 years ,searching for new  ' Interesting times '  by re-inventing my own   ' Identity' again.

 

EGO EVADERE is all about strength, force and keep on believing in yourself .The last financial crises was hard, especially for living artists and a lot of them lost believing in theirselves. I just kept on painting for that's what kept me going. In 2016 - 2017 everything came together : first in 2016 an museum exhibition  called ' the most remarkable Dutch Abstract Artist of the last 25 years'  and in 2017 the invitation for Venice this year aswell as being part of the core-collection of the Museum MUSIOM in Amersfoort.  Invitations for exhibitions came in again and all turned back to , more or less, normal . However I learned a lot from the years 2007 - 2017 and that is I will survive, EGO EVADERE .

 

In the installation of Au! ,  EGO EVADERE is the moment where pure realistic painting  (from the left)  ,transforms into  abstraction .
