Vernissage whitout Pictures

Last Sunday I had a vernissage of my exhibition at the Polish Library in Amsterdam at Keizersgracht 174. Actually, the first time I decided to tell my audience about my art, I’m sorry, the second time. I spoke for the first time four years ago at Leeszaal West in Rotterdam. Anyway, it was the first time I did it with great pleasure, relaxed and passed, what I wanted to convey. I think I’ve just matured to such presentations. I owe this special evening to the public – friends and strangers who came to see what I did. Ania, my friend and translator, translated every sentence from Polish to Dutch so that everyone could understand what I’m talking about.

Interestingly, probably nobody took pictures, I also forgot about them. In times when every step is documented, it is amazing. Everyone sat and just listened. Maybe I saw one person with a phone that tried something, but I do not even know who it was. Does not matter. I will remember this evening because of its atmosphere and delightful meeting.

The second interesting thing is that for the purposes of the exhibition I pulled Lady Kangaroo out of the closet. In fact, I have already finished this project, but the exhibition made me realize that it is the LADY that has more potential than my current graphics. What I do now is quite heavy in reception. People, however, like light, bright, joyous art. I also felt a lot easier when I looked at all the crazy, unusual, colorful linocuts with Lady Kangaroo.

Rooted in Graphics

I would like to invite you to my individual exhibition that will take place on Saturday, November 17 at the Polish library in Amsterdam at Keizersgracht 174 (downstairs).
I am very happy that I can present here a cross-section of my work from 2013 to 2018. I want to show the audience mainly two series of graphics “Lady Kangaroo” and the current, very personal linocuts, which I create since the beginning of 2017. The exhibition is also an important event for me due to the fact that for some time I decided to stop presenting my work to a wider audience. I decided to focus on a new project about which I will be constantly informed. It is very possible that my website will change significantly. However, I do not intend to completely break with the linocut.

The title of the exhibition is taken from the article describing my work entitled “Geworteld in de grafiek”by Hans Andringa, which appeared in the graphic RAAM magazine issued by the vog graphics platform in the 18 # 3 issue.

During the vernissage I will talk about my work and answer the audience’s questions.

You are welcome!

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.
