It was an amazing experience to take part in a recent group exhibition at the beautiful Agora Gallery, West 25th Street, New York. It was also extra special to have a few dear family and friends to celebrate with during this event.
It was beautiful, wild and dangerous, yet hypnotising in its force and motion. Experiencing a recent intense storm off the coast of Ireland, looking into the Atlantic ocean was the source of inspiration for my latest painting.
2018 promises to be a good one, with kick-starting the year by signing with my dream gallery: Agora Gallery, situated in Chelsea, Manhattan. The collaboration includes taking part in the renowned art fair: Artexpo New York, April 19th – 22nd 2018.
Followed by a group exhibition in Agora Gallery, May 22nd-June 12th. With the opening night on Thursday May 24th at 6pm. More details will follow. All are welcome.
38 artists open their doors to the public on this 22nd year of “de Kunstfietsdagen”. My studio is open with 3 extra large new paintings and a fourth new one hangs in the theatre across the street. In the neighbourhood, then pop in! (De Oude Politiebureau, de Slinger 2, Houten, The Netherlands)
Guiding eight gallant women, working together in pairs, 4 diptych’s were created. We celebrated International Women’s Day in the company of diverse nationalities and the donations went to support Cordaid Memisa in their support and education of pregnant women in Africa.
I am currently taking part in a portrait exhibition in the local theatre, Theater aan de Slinger, in Houten,N.L., together with my two sons, Aidan (11) and Finn (7).
All residents in Houten were invited to take part. The exhibition was preluded with a Live portrait session where 5 Houten artists captured on paper, canvas and clay, a distinguished Houten professor Gijs van Kuik. The exhibition runs until May 12th. For more info click op Portrait expo.
I have divided my paintings into four categories. Whether its a landscape, a person, a close-up, nature, or an abstract painting, certain elements are universal in my work. These include the light intensity which could be described as being dramatic. Also a sense of motion and energy are a constant fascination. Hope you enjoy browsing through the various categories.
