Lichtwelten – Lichtkunst

An exhibition with light art of German, Ducht and Belgian light artistst in Galerie Art Engert and its new sculpture garden. Most artist bring work that is made before. I made an installion on site, in a nut tree. I called it ‘Waving’, after the waving planes the installation is made up of. An example […]

Wood art at Galerie Twintig in Hillegom

In Hillegom a new gallery started, Galerie Twintig. A beautiful space with paintings, sculpture, photografy. I brought a series of sculptures, mainly from olive wood, a single one from willos or golden rain wood. The gallery is at this moment open on appointment. Loes Hogervorst 06-37290123. Hoofdstraat 128, Hillegom.

Where I am

All members of Kunstcafé Rivierenland were asked to tell something about their artistry, their development, and where they are now. I did it too, it gives a nice insight that I now also share here. How and when did the artist in you arise… and where are you now? In 2003 I was at home […]

Expected in 2021

2020 was a strange year in which many events were canceled, but in which I was very creative, breaking new paths. For 2021 I look forward to many activities, but especially to a solo exhibition in the beautiful CHV Noordkade in Veghel and an Artist in Residency in Assens, Denmark. A provisionary agenda: KunstWandelRoute, Hummelo, […]

Lock down art

Personally I have not noticed much of the kind of lock down. I spend a lot of time outside, have space to live, don’t know people who have become ill. I was struck by the image of elderly, sometimes people with disabilities, who were no longer allowed to receive visitors, or only through the window. […]

Art at Kulenburg care center

Many elderly people, especially in care centers, cannot leave their home at the moment. I know musicians are playing at care centers, bringing relief to the residents. I am not musical, but I am creative. If the corona virus were not there, I would exhibit now and build installations. Now that is not possible. Or […]

cannot be visited, but it can be seen

These are strange times. We sit inside or go outside little. All exhibitions have been canceled. No KunstWandelRoute Hummelo, no Art Route Lochem. You can also no longer visit the Eye Candy 25 exhibition at Galerie Anita Ammerlaan in Roozendaal. But virtually you can! I made a video of the exhibition. Well, actually only from […]

Transcend

A female figure enters the land from the water, in 5 images. The first figure largely under water, heavy, muddy. The following figures become lighter, more transparent. A woman with dress. The latter, on the shore, is the most open and transparent. It is about the relationship between man and nature, about the connection with […]
