 "Attraction" pieces/ Love stories:



"The Sky is Simply the Limit"


For a Dutch real estate agent I created this large painting portraying his business mottos 'The sky is the limit' and 'Keep it simple'. The composition shows a building and a building plan in one. The walls, chambers and domes are portrayed in colours the sky adopts during various weather types. From orange skies during sunrise to rainy grey days. From bright summer air to clear night skies. The red, orange and grey colours also depict stone types, from brick to concrete. This corresponds to the client being a dealer in stone. All together the emphasis of this painting is the message that everything is possible, if you are able to keep things simple and clear. I titled it: "The Sky is Simply the Limit".





In this dyptich I present two juxtaposed paintings: one is a reflection of the family that lives in this lovely home and the other is an impression of the outside world. In this work I capture a specific moment in the lives of two young parents, who just had their first child. It is a family snapshot, a celebration of the bubble of homeliness.



"Achterhoek - Randstad"


This drawing was created for someone who originally comes from ‘De Achterhoek’ and now lives partly in Amsterdam. It portrays an opposition between the countryside ('Achterhoek') in the Netherlands and the conurbation, the ‘Randstad’. It shows a symbolic centre where lines cross each other like infrastructure in densely populated areas. The Randstad is an area considered to be the political and economical centre of The Netherlands. The crossing lines show the turmoil and action, typical for this part of the country.

Around the centre you see straight lines symbolising the raked polder landscape, characteristic for the Netherlands. Everyday life is orderly and clear in the countryside. To the right we see the actual 'Achterhoek', which could be translated as 'Back corner'. In the shape of an actual corner it portrays that rural region in the outer east of the Netherlands (right side of the compass). One line forms the lifeline of the client between his beloved 'Achterhoek' and the treasured capital of The Netherlands.


“In balance”

In this diptych I captured a balanced home with predominantly female members. I tried to capture the stability of a young household with a second daughter on her way, using strong and almost symmetrical shapes and colours. With warm and earthy tints I portray the warmth and comfort of a young family.
