Art Description

Painting: Paint and Resin on Other.

This Flag is inspired on the flag of the city of Harderwijk in The Netherlands. This city hosted my first exhibition in 2016. This work is an hommage to this city and its history. Theme of this work is 'water', as Harderwijk is situatied on the coast of the former "Southersea". This sea has been reclaimed and nowadays Harderwijk rests on the banks of a large lake. The original flag is in blue and yellow. For this work I used 5 shades of blue and 24 carat gold leaf as well as faux gold leaf to replace the yellow.
Bubbles are an essential part of my art. I created the technique Bubble Gilding in 2015.
This technique depicts the bubbles in which we live. The bubbles are made with secret ingredients. The other ingredients in this technique are: pure and fake gold leaf, resin/epoxy and pigments. Bubble Gilding is a combination of watergilding, verre eglomisé, epoxy casting and painting, thus combining ancient old techniques with modern techniques.
This work is framed and its measures are 63.5x43.5 cms
