Sunday 6 October 2019 saw the opening of a sales exhibition of my work at Bart Boogaard Piano Services in central Amsterdams. For details, click here.
All the works in the exhibition are for sale.
There are photo montages in series of maximum 10 copies. These can—within limits—be printed in different sizes.
There are drawings, some framed and some not.
And there are unique collages. These are sold in their frames.
The montages & collages are often based on the hexagon, that can also be seen as a cube. This is also an indication that what you see is not always what it appears to be, but can also be something else.

In 2018 I started, next to the photo montages, to make collages. At first I called them “destructive edits”. That name was derived from the concept of “non-destructive editing”. This entails a process in which images and video are edited, leaving the original material untouched. Something that, in this digital age, is very common. And handy, since you can try endlessly and always start over.
For the collages that I make with paper, book pages, maps and the like, this doesn’t work of course. The editing, or montage, follows a path, from which often there is no way back.
Now I prefer to call them Constructive Edits, because the process is like building, construction.
Virtual Spaces, Oversized
Especially for this exhibition I printed two of my photo montages in large formats. They are unmounted and unframed.
Please enquire after the possibilities of different sizes, mounts and frames.
Beeches Sheep, or Noun & Verb
Also over the piano on the ground floor, is this smaller piece, mounted on Dibond.
In the more intimate space of the basement, there are smaller pieces, montages and drawings.
Such as this one, combining two very different places and experiences
Entertaining Glasgow, Remembering La Gomera
I lived just round the corner of Dam Square in Amsterdam, the place that gave the city its name. The annual fair, on the occasion of Queen’s Day was a mixed pleasure for us, although it got me some good pictures. This montage is a consequence.
Max & His World
These two photo montages are a report of a hike in the Swiss Alps and a visit to Max’s refuge. A memorable experience
These two prints are mounted on foam board. They can also be framed. The green dots indicate that of each picture a copy has been sold. There are more copies available, also in different sizes. A reduction is offered when they are bought together.
Driving around Norway, I drew. Ik call them Imaginary Landscapes. In the exhibition there are six, treed them are framed. the others are mounted on foam board. These can also be framed, if desired.
