About The Artwork

This work is actually created in assignment for a theme night called ‘Night Shift’. The designated location was a hotel in Zwolle. My theme automatically shifted towards the idea of desolate hotel nights (featuring the late Cohen and his former lover Marianne Faithfull). In these hotel nights most people are sound a sleep, some wandering, drinking or enjoying a romance, few killing time in utterly despair, others at work. The nightshift. This image is a mix between the rock statuses of a Chelsea Hotel (NY) and the clean, functional and impersonal traffic space of hotels everywhere. Hotels are places to escape from or to disappear to. The elevator doors, some half open, some closed, representing hotel rooms and what secrets they keep. The laundry bags representing the less fancy part of hotel life, literally dirty laundry waiting to be washed white...but who’s dirty laundry are we looking at? This theme night is cancelled but the work was already done. The artwork is never collected. So after a period of one and a half year I decided that I wont keep this work from you. It fits perfectly in my series of work.

I can experience art on many levels and in many different ways. Then I look for aesthetics and eloquence but also for a particular angle. I make contemporary engaged art. It has a certain urgency. It is reflecting us, people and the zeitgeist. Images speak louder than words and basically appeal very directly to our feelings. My images are something of a mix between activism and philosophy, they want to engage in dialogue.” I am born in Hoorn (NH) (1970) and have been working as a visual artist since 1994. My studio is located at the Rieteweg 10 in Zwolle. I am a multidisciplinary artist. My autonomous work includes painting, collage, installation, digital art, photo manipulation, video art and 3d. I also work on commission and on a project basis. Typical for my autonomous work is the key role for man in its shape and behaviour. It is often a reflection of current social themes, but also mundane and personal issues are important sources of inspiration. Through small interventions, repetitions, inversions, or breaking surfaces with architectural forms, a new image is created in a somewhat familiar image. Although my work can be seen as aesthetic, it often conceals certain uneasiness, abrasive aesthetics. This duality or ambiguity is also a recurring theme. Do you see what you see? The resulting images are often on the cutting edge of fiction, realism, graphic and plastic. Contemporary (sur)realist?- My work cannot be placed in a tradition or movement. There are certainly surrealistic elements in my work and occasionally some abstraction, but in terms of style I draw from (contemporary) realism. Until now, I have been able to express myself best in the figurative, although I do not rule out anything for the future. As far as I am concerned, art is fluid and and artist never stop evolving. I do not wish to limit myself, neither to a medium, nor to autonomous art. I see myself much more as a conduit of concepts and ideas. Often my ideas are interspersed with philosophical questions and/or social themes that occupy me. I therefore sometimes set myself the task of casting these in project form, if only within the limitations of visual art. This has resulted in a number of projects varying from social to future-oriented.
