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.

Making birthday cards

In addition to making labor-intensive illustrations and portraits,
sometimes it is nice to do something small that you can give to the
others. That’s why I decided to make the birthday cards. The one I show
below is made for a friend of mine who soon will has his birthday.
Since this card is not printed  as a single copy  but I made an edition of about 20 I decided to customize this one a specially for the friend.
