About

Artist Commentary: Books often appear in my work. Books are those containers of wisdom, of knowledge, of culture Words used to describe the piece: representational, books, humor, surreal, fantasy Artist Biography: In my work, I do not teach, rather trigger a few questions. We mostly go through life in a automatic-pilot state of mind. I would love to have my artwork given a few thoughts someone may pick up. And with that, inspire the passer-by for a moment to think outside the box of our day-to-day routine mindset. My work can be representational, can be abstract. But I always hope to trigger the fantasy of the viewer. I was born in the Netherlands. I moved to Cologne, Germany in 2001 and I moved again in 2004 to Brooklyn, NY. Now I am in Kingston, NY. So, I wandered through the world a bit. It just happened. Although I settled down everywhere I was, I still remained a bit of a stranger. Various things in every day life can be strange to me. Even when I am back in Holland, I notice I sometimes think: hmm, that’s weird, “we” don’t do it like that. This is the eye of the wonderer. From a wandered, I became a wonderer and look around. The wonderer is what my work is about.
