Transit

Final presentation. Paintings, paper and textile objects, works on paper, found materials. Artspace Flipside Eindhoven Netherlands, 6 September 2013 - 6 October 2013




In this work period I investigated the relations between paintings and objects in a daily changing setting. This to explore the possibilities of making new installations with existing materials which had no connection with each other at the start. I started the first two weeks with a focus on nature and ended the last two weeks with a focus on an urban environment. During the whole period the workspace was open to the public.

Indian Summer

Installation of works on paper. De Nederlandse Cacaofabriek Helmond, 11 September 2011 – 16 October 2011




The title refers to the short period in the Autumn with warm and sunny weather after a first night of frost. The exhibition was based on a longer stay at Manitoulin Island in October 2010. Manitoulin Island lies in Lake Huron in the province Ontario within Canada. The island has impressive landscapes and a rich flora and fauna. Manitoulin is a sacred place for the Anishinaabe, the original inhabitants. There are six reserves for First Nations people. The contacts with First Nations inhabitants and artists and the colourful Autumn nature were very inspiring.

The installation of 5x3 meter was built on a wall in the project space of the Cacaofabriek with 180 Works on paper, exploring the relationship between this other culture and the familiar images from my European background. .
