My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
210mm x 297 A4 glass clip frame, acrylic paint
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies, each unique
The clip frame backing board is marked in pencil, mapping geometric shapes and proportions relational to its dimensions and the four slot apertures. Colours are emotiomaticaly selected and combined, in rhythm to the mantra internalised, and applied at the intersection of lines. The final composition grows from the weight of the glass and the gentle squeeze exerted by the frames clips, spreading and connecting colours between the two surfaces. Made to be displayed in transitional spaces, to remind the viewer to be fully present.
Note on viewing: Each painting is its own universe, select one. Breathe slowly and deeply whilst observing the painting. Gradually let your gaze go out of focus. Meditate on the centre of the painting, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.
existing plywood pedestals relocated from Lokaal 01 Gallery and placed on the streets of Breda, Holland
An art gallery environment is often refereed to as a ‘White Cube’. Inside the ‘White Cube’ you will often find more ‘white cubes’, boxes of different proportions commonly called ‘pedestals’, supporting art objects. Unlike the internal white cube environment of the gallery, the pedestal is a box with only its external top horizontal surface used for the display of art.
For the exhibition State Your Business all preexisting pedestals from Lokaal 01 Gallery will be relocated from within the gallery to the city, literally taking the ‘white cubes’ out of the ‘white cube’. They will no longer be the support for an art object, nothing is placed on the pedestal, instead it is the pedestal that is placed in relation to existing conditions within the city that share the same formal language, electric boxes, waste bins, car park ticket machines etc.
