Research Project:

“Terug naar de bossen van toen”
Spring & summer 2021

After 10 years of residencies in other countries I will start an in-depth research project and residency focussing on my birthground on May 1st.
During the Covid19 pandemic all international residencies were and are cancelled. Therefore I started exploring my homeground anew by making long walks, which arose the idea to go “back to the forests of the past”. My aim is to compose a new thematic collection of south-east Brabant in paintings and graphic work, inspired by the landscapes of my youth and my direct surroundings. What would be the influence of the “typical” light of Brabant and what would be her influence on my work? 

The beautiful title is from the same titled article by Anneke van Wolfswinkel on my work in Eindhovens Dagblad (2014). 

I am happy to announce, that she has confirmed to write an article about this project too.

I am very grateful with the support of Cultuur Eindhoven

Research Project:

15.10.2020 – 15.04.2021

The past 6 months I have been working on a new collection of oil paintings for the research project
“Ressonância da Terra” inspired by minha Alentejo (Portugal), due to the cancellation of the residency at Fundacao Obras and the solo exhibition at Museu Municipal Prof. J. Vermelho in Estremoz in Portugal in 2020.

This new collection will be on show at the future solo exhibition at Galeria Municipal D. Dinis, Museu Municipal Prof. J. Vermelho
in Estremoz (P) in the spring of 2022
(postponed from spring 2020 and 2021).

Made possible by the great support of a project investment by

Mondriaan Fonds   











                                     A beautiful article about my work and my special connection with Portugal on Portugal Portal, written by Ton Haak.
