OIL ON CANVAS - SERIES TECHNICAL STILL LIFES

People and technology. Mankind is all about technique. The human condition is a technical condition. Technical devices have become our second nature. It is both our poison as our medicine.*
My approach is trivial. I use the devices in my environment as a topic for my paintings. This results in the series technique still lifes, painted in the period from 1990 till now. The first series is a series of household appliances.

MESO LEVEL

I paint in a traditional way. The paintings are slowly built up; layer after thin layer. This technique enhances the colors. For this fine painters' technique, small brushes are used. This classical way of painting stands opposite a loose, deviating perspective and the use of strange and vibrant colors.

TECHNICAL DEVICES INSIDE

I was also very curious about the inside of the devices and how they would look like... Don't you ever wonder what's inside?

BJÖRK'S WEIRD INTERVIEW

I guess I was not the only one who was mesmerized by the content of an old school television! Pay attention! The same details in the video are visible in the painting!! 
2017 - 2018 The series still continues. Series 3: technical constructions, that 'we meet on the street'. The series Wheels of trains in red, blue, and pink were part of the exhibition Vrijplaats in the rough building of the former prison "Bijlmer Bajes" Amsterdam. In this video, you also see the work of Mario Supa.

OIL ON CANVAS MICRO LEVEL - SERIE ORGANIC ABSTRACT

I was so amazed by the work of the 'Leids' Cytological and Pathological Laboratory. The manipulated photo's from confocal microscopy with pseudo-colors are completely a different world. Crazy to see what is happening in the micro-world! This led to a series of organic abstract oil paintings.
