About a dream - acrylics on canvas 40*50 cm.
A while ago I had a very weird dream about a girl. It was a very short dream but I was really in love with it so I decided to draw it out so I could make a painting of it.
It was not specifically the girl I was so amazed by in this dream but more those freckles or whatever they are. They were in a pattern on her back and shoulders and instead of brown they were red, almost glowing. When I woke up I was still amazed so I had to make something to not forget this dream.
Besides it’s a welcome change from the usual zombie/fantasy/arguing dreams I have :).
Lost in transition - acrylics on canvas 50*70 cm.
The idea is to see what happens when teleportation goes wrong. For now only molecules where teleportated and it’s still not feasible to teleport even small things like a matchstick. But there will be a day it does get real and practical and before that we get accidents like this.
I think I’ll make this a series.
Mutant Pantoffeldiertjes(paramecium) - approximately 21*30cm, fineliner and markers on paper.
A few weeks back http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/sumrow this artist had a contest about drawing uncommon creatures. I entered, did not win but had lots of fun in the making of this piece in the given time limit, and an honorable mention :).
Anyway, these are giant Paramecium, or as they are called in the Netherlands ‘pantoffeldiertjes’(they look like slippers).
some lab people were not paying attention and fed them after midnight. They better had watched gremlins ;)
Sketching - 21*30cm, ballpoint on paper.
sketch done during a few train trips. I was checking out how much could be done with random lines and patterns. Would it become cluttered or recognizeable.
99% - acrylics on canvas 50*70 cm.
Not much to say about this one since it’s just about the 99% versus the 1%. rich versus poor etc. etc.
Duality - approximately 13*15 cm, soapstone sculpture.
Common theme about how people can display different behavior in certain settings.
Fragility - approximately 6*9 cm, soapstone sculpture.
So I picked up sculpturing again. Started off with this simple yet ironic piece.
A weapon that reminds us of the fragility of the human body, but as it’s made out of stone itself possesses those same qualities.
W.I.P. - Fineliner and ink/acrylics on paper 50*70 cm.
Finally all the outlines are done and now it’s time to colour it all in.
Perversions - A4 and A3, Ballpoint on paper.
For some reason I always end up with some nudity in my works.
Some people think about it as perverse.
I don’t think it is that perverse, it’s just I appreciate how bodies are shaped.
And if you talk about it on a larger scale almost every living entity out there in the world is in the nude. It is in essence natural to be nude. Even adam and eve started out in the nude. But somewhere along the trip nudity has become a point of shame and disgrace in most parts of the world.
Thankfully I live in a country where one can (still) voice their opinion about almost everything without being ostracized.
Done with ballpoint after a loooong time abandoning that tool.
