Exhibition ‘t Kunstuus "Captured in Paint"

From 16/05/2012 – 09/06/2012 I will have an exhibition in the artgallery ‘t Kunstuus in Heinkenszand (NL) together with Dimitri Cambier. He will display some ceramics works, and I will show some of my paintings. The focus for me in this exhibition will lie in capturing the flow and movement I see in in nature and life, in color and in structure. The lines that you see all day out there, and the processes happening around us, the stages of nature, captured in paint. More info you can find on the artgallery on www.kunstuus.nl

A snapshot of the latest work finished

Just a snapshot of the painting I just finished. The inspiration for this painting began with the tremors and volcanic activity on El Hierro in 2011, and what is still going on (earthquake-report.com/2011/09/25/el-hierro-canary-islands…) My mother, Joke Volta, makes pictures every day for the site earthquake report, to follow the status of the eruption… The colors there led me to this painting, ending in a dragon shape bursting out of the lava…. I am currently preparing for an exhibition from 16 may – 9 june 2012 in the ‘t Kunstuus in Heinkenszand (NL) (www.kunstuus.nl) So more new paintings need to be made, but inspiration enough around in the world…

Art in the Oostvaardersclinic Almere 2010-2011

The foundation in the arts “Oostvaarders Clinic” of the in 2008 newly openend forensic psychiatric clinic offers artists a unique exhibition space, where in addition of the patients and staff, many guests will be ablle to see the work. 

They accomodate themselves in a prestigious new building which is even rewarded with a major architecture prize. In 2009 and early 2010 I already had some works exhibited in this location, with several artists, in an ongoing, changing exhibition for a longer period. Now again I have some works exhibited there from October 2010 until the end of June 2011.

Art market Almere Haven

On Saturday, September 5, 2009, in the center of Almere Haven an Art market took place as part of the Haven festival. 

More than 50 booths with professional and amateur artists from across the country were there. Saturday unfortunately the weather was not so good and therefore the number of visitors to the market was lower then last year. 

But it dried up in the afternoon and more people came to take a look at the stalls. I had a lot of good response and some works have been sold. All in all, despite the weather, it was successful!
