In my new project: Contemporare Pieces  2014 – 2015 I want to get into the subject of contemporary art, what are the elements that make Art contemporary and what does this mean. I don’t know yet, I will do research, and start with many small sketches and drawings. That’s how it always begins. My aim is During  this process these little studies will develop into large works on special 400 gr. fabriano paper.

This new Project is now possible, because of the former project: Drawings and works on paper based on Renaissance paintings, referring to a historical concept.
The project resulted in 94 drawings and works on paper, I deeply involved myself and now it’s time for this new project.

So I will post these new works and hope that you enjoy them!

Thanks!

Art reflects its time, a primary source of information.

These drawings and works are multilayered and study’s based on Renaissance paintings and refer to a historical concept. Somehow they reflect an atmosphere of apocalypse.
Whether religious, sexual or political, they are part of the timeframe then and the timeframe now.

With these study’s I want to connect 16th century art with Contemporary art.

Whether religious, sexual or political, they are part of the timeframe then and the timeframe now. Wars going on, religious uproar, sexual conflicts, economically uncertain times. But at the same an opening up of fantastic innovative possibilities then and now.

With these study’s I want to connect 16th century art with Contemporary art.
