About The Artwork

Two fish are swimming and twirling gracefully around in an otherwise abstract surrounding. They seemed caught in a surreal film and must avoid a threatening hook. In the background a small crowd is standing before what looks like a giant screen, but they do not pay any attention to it because they’re submerged in their own screens. They are there without actually being there mentally. Between the screens the battle for attention is only just started and they are wondering which topic will get the most likes the fastest.

About me I have been working as an independent visual artist since 1994. My studio is located in Zwolle at communal building for music, performance, arts & crafts @ Rieteweg 10, Zwolle, Overijssel, the Netherlands. I am rooted in the graphic industry but over time I have developed into a multi-disciplinary artist. About my work A distinctive feature in my work is the human body & personality in al its shapes, forms and behavioural aspects. My art is often a personal reflection of social issues and current affairs. Daily scenes, platitudes and the absurdities of human behaviour also inspire me. Although my art is highly aesthetical it also contains distressing elements that evoke a feeling of uneasiness. This contradiction is a recurring theme in my artwork. Do you really see what is shown? What lies underneath? Thematically it could be looked upon as a search to the core of being. My graphic background is still present as the images I create are attractive, smooth and somewhat polished at first sight. On second sight the controversy is revealed. My aim is to portray human nature, stripped of pretence or behind the surface. The created images often touch upon the edge of fiction and fact. To me, innovation is not a purpose in itself but the result of progressive insight and the need to stretch and push my own boundaries. Currently my work seems a mixture between strange architectural environments and floating, displaced and/or disconnected creatures. Besides next to my work as an independent artist, I create and participate in community art projects and educational art projects. I also designs for non-profit organizations, private clients and commercial companies. Last but not least I am a participating member of the visual arts committee in Zwolle.
