Pigeons for Ospreys

Next week I'll briefly swap pigeons for ospreys, the Westerkerk for the Space Needle and a rainy flat city for a rainy hilly one. See you later Amsterdam, howdy-do Seattle!

I'm looking forward to show my new work. The serie for my exhibition 'Let the Devil Wear Black' is inspired by a range of sources from Japanese ghost stories to the act of harvesting and the beauty of berries and fruit, all characteristically accompanied by animals and other characters.

The new serie of paintings will go with the loot of extraordinary frames I collected for this exhibition. Hand carved, home crafted and full of personality and uniqueness. Tramp art, antique Dutch, Black Forest woodcarving or World War 2 memorabilia, these frames have a (hi)story of their own. (And as the completion of my paintings another chapter is added to their tale).

Hope to see you December the 7th at Roq la Rue Gallery.

Opening night from 6-9 pm, 2312 2nd Avenue, Seattle, WA. (206) 374 8977 All work for the exhibition will be online on the gallery's website after the opening. For more information please contact Kirsten Anderson at Roq la Rue Gallery.

Getting Ready

Meet my dad. Every now and then he helps me out framing. Yesterday he was so kind to lend me a hand with the preps for the upcoming exhibition. Here he is framing some of my work at the table in the salt mines (also known as my living room). Thanks a million, dad!

Below; Noodles. And some of the framed works, ready to be packed and shipped.
