"Anatomische Les" in the hall of Oldelft Benelux.
Mona Lisa's in the bedroom...
This summer we painted our bedroom,black and white which gave me the idea to paint
"matching" colored paintings.
"Old dixie in the livingroom"
"Pieta in the diningroom"
In developing my own style in painting I have experimented with square colored pieces.
Originally it was based upon the work of Mondriaan. His works were too "square" for
me; I want to show something one can recognize in a picture, but you have to concentrate a
little bit for it. One more restriction I put on myself is the use of straight black lines and
all the squares must be surrounded by a black line.(I also used colored lines already)
The lines are often of a different size; sometimes to express
depth or importance of the part in the painting.Mondriaan tried to loose all depth in his paintings, i try to do the opposite,i love to get depth and hopefully : optical movement ,in the squares and in the painting. Another difference , I do not hate natural colors like green........
Luckily iI have a normal Job to pay for my housing and food, i am poor enough to be creative but not that poor as a lot of artists were or are. I do not feel myself a lesser artist , because I have a normal job , wife and kids and lead a normal life. People expect a artist to be eccentric , but I have a normal haircut,normal clothes and think normal as far as I know....
Hope you like my work
