It is going to be a very busy weekend because apart from OPEN Expo, I take part in one more exhibition. It will be the sixth exhibition from the SALON series at Gallery Regio Art Rijnmond in Spijkenisse. The opening of the exhibition is planned for September 8 at 4 p.m and it will be done by Dichter des Vaderlands Ester Naomi Perquin. The exhibition will feature works by fourteen artists.
That day is also the Art Market and the Open Monuments Day in Spijkenisse.

You are wholeheartedly welcomed at the opening of the exhibition or if you can not come this Saturday, visit the exhibition at your convenience till 8th of October. The gallery is open on Fridays and Saturdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 pm.

OPEN Expo Schiedam

OPE VG_Affiche DEF.jpg


This coming weekend we will enjoy OPEN Expo at the Schiedam Museum. There will be works of 136 artists to see. As a resident of Schiedam. I was asked to invite an artist from outside this town. My choice fell on Violetta Riedel, who specializes in portrait photography. Her photographs are unusual, very individual, original, looking almost as paintings. Her website.

Here, underneath, I quote a short text about the exhibition from the press release.

The concept is simple: Schiedam artists ask a non-Schiedam colleague as a guest to exhibit for four days at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. “The large amount and diversity of registrations is overwhelming and impressive”, says Open Expo Schiedam, the driving force behind the exhibition. From 6 to 9 September you can visit the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam for free to see and experience the major art event.

Internal Portrait

I decided to focus on creating internal portraits in the near future , i.e. those that portray a person not showing physical similarity, but what can happen in his soul or/and mind. I was always interested in people and how I could present them in a portrait. The atmosphere that one creates around itself is sometimes more appealing than the external appearance. Each of us is an individual who is not only characterized by a unique appearance, but also our own thoughts, views or memories. We can also translate our inner life into illustrations that are not in the word.  The picture will tell about who we are and what is important to us. An interesting and beautiful adventure is ahead of me. First results, visible in the pictures below.

Let me know if you are interested in such a portrait for yourself or as a gift for someone you know. I will be happy to take on challenges.
