Artwork – Kunstfotografie

The residents

A series I am working on at the moment (end of 2017). The figurines you see are the residents of my mind.

All residents are born in my mind, the subconscious. They slowly come to life when working on them. I am inspired by  memories, stories, everyday life, the people around me, dreams etc. I love to bring delicate details in my artwork. Things you don’t see at first, but will catch your eye and makes you wonder. Why? What happened?

I always start with a portrait, a face and slowly add or delete and disform parts until I recognize them.

It is my way to express my feelings and all the little and big voices inside that we all know in our own world. It can take up to weeks to finish a work. It is not finished until I can feel the vibes.

The big size artworks (around 80 x 120 cm are limited editions of 7, so you receive a one of a kind artwork.

It is printed by a professional printstore in Amsterdam on Hahnemuhle German etching 310 grm. This heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture. German Etching® is one of the most popular media worldwide for artwork and photography.

The artwork will come with a Hahnemühle Certificate of Authenticity. Each certificate is made of premium deckle edged mould made paper with a Hahnemühle watermark and fluorescent security fibres. A serialized numbered hologram should be added. A second, identically numbered hologram should then be applied to the reverse side of the artwork.
The combination of certificate and hologram assures that each Certificate of Authenticity relates to one particular piece of art.

If you prefer your very large (or larger print) within this edition on other material or sizes, please contact me and I will try everything to personalize your print.

Artworks are also available in very small size (up to 20 cm on the long side max.), like a guilty pleasure. Please let me know if you are interested.
