About Project Silver Maple Ballroom 2016 – 2017

This project is about manipulation, mental and verbal, I think right now you will find this phenomenon everywhere.
Whether we talk about the Trumps of our time, or Google with his manipulative data searches, or the way it is brutally used within religion.
To me it looks like ordinary people all over are deluded by overpowering loud rude speeches, mind boggling internet data, the power of media, without asking themselves what they might feel or think.
It seems as if as a sincere person that is civilized, thinks, analyses, educates him or herself, is powerless by this short-sighted and self-centred behaviour.

To be named refugees as part of anonymous numerous groups that are wandering around in Europe and elsewhere around the world is one thing.
To be able to give these people a face is another.
This as an artist is my small contribution.

Project Contemporare Pieces | A follow up
In this new Project I want to get into the subject of contemporary art, what are the elements that make art contemporary art?

And what does this mean?
A recurring designation in the History of art, and what is its value?
Van Gogh was known as contemporary because he broke with traditions, but today any artist anywhere brakes or tries to, with traditions.
Has it become a meaning in itself?

A follow up on my investigation into Renaissance art and contemporary artists who reflect(ed) on them.

The subject of what is contemporary art today continues to stir controversy.
