upcycled denim sculpture


From denim leftovers, I created the denim sculpture “FEEL”.  HXWXD 120X50X50 cm. 

The textile sculpture was exhibited on a bed. The bed was decorated with text & drawings, accomplished by students from the St. Joost Academie Breda.


Doors of perception

The denim sculpture has a cripple appearance and reminds us vaguely of a sex doll. In an era of digital overconsumption, we receive an overload of information. Our brains have limited resources. When constrained and overwhelmed with thoughts, they pursue well-trod paths of least resistance, trying to efficiently bring order to chaos. Information overload keeps us mired in noise... “Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?” T.S. Elliot. 

The denim doll is holding the book " Art & Lies" by Jeanette Winterson. Besides the bed, an old overhead projector was placed with the intro text from this book. It explains the alienation and the timelessness of art:

The nature of a work of art

is not to be a part, nor yet

a copy of the real world,

but a world in itself,

independent, complete, autonomous

and to possess it fully

you must enter that world,

conform to its laws,

and ignore for the time the beliefs,

aims, and particular conditions

which belong to you

in the other world of reality.


(Oxford lectures on poetry: Professor Bradley in the year 1901)



Nice that you are interested in my world of mystic shades, funky colors, and crazy lines. I am a Dutch painter and upcycler. Since 1990 I am working with charcoal, graphite, and paint. Around the year 2000, I started also working on a computer with a pen tablet. Since 2010, I extended my work field with textiles and applied art. The characteristics of my work are artisanal, small scale, and neo-folkloristic.

The name Pixelpolly was invented in a spontaneous mood while working on the computer with timelines, filters, and effects. (Pixel Polly is a scattering, exploding effect in Adobe After Effects). Work has been shown at the linen museum Bussemakerhuis in Borne, the National Theater Hall in Utrecht (paintings & video walls), the Museum of resistance in Amsterdam (installation), at the Dutch sustainable Fashion Week & during the annual Museum Night of Rotterdam. 





June - workshop upcycling textile waste @ the Refugees Food Festival Final Party De Ruimte Amsterdam    

7 December - Street art performance Trash fashion.

Location the futuristic station Arnhem. 
This event was part of the traveling exhibition FACE TIME of foundation "Kunst en Cultuur in Beweging". The theme was Identity in society. de public space performance was supported by Awearness Fashion. Our waste-culture has a devastating effect on our planet earth. The garment industry is one of the biggest polluters, its impact on our globe is disastrous. It was an interactive performance staged by Eco-nymphs dressed up in trash-fashion: garments and accessories all made of waste textiles. The intention was to give the traveler a loving but sustainable message with sweet music, hand kisses, perfume, and eco-glitter. Warning: this show is not visible for those who don't believe in fairy tales!

Before the performance. The preparations.
