Art Singel 100
Life and work
Het bruidspaar, 1962
First painting on a larger scale. Painted in selfmade eggtempera. Also forerunner of the metropolis series of the eighties and nineties.
Vivre sa vie (Ana Karina), 1963
First drawing with strong personal style characteristics. My discovery of abstract values in a portrait without losing the psychological content. The main character features done in black are henceforth characteristic in my work.
This expressionistic, colourful nude is the first one of a long series. Heavy, black contours, a reduced colourscheme and open, transparent volumes are characteristic.
Provo meisje, 1964
Archetype of my figuration. Graphic image combined with other technique, introducing volume.
Seated nude, 1964
Expressionist pendrawing in ink on paper. One of the first in a long series.
Womans bust, 1966
Imaginary portrait in oil on paper served as a basis for large format heads in the late seventies and eighties.
Man in blue room, 1971
One of the first single figures that is placed in a context, a basic interior.
Seated woman in leather jacket, 1977
First example of the collage technique in combination with drawing in ink. Archetype of a woman on a high chair. Most common subject in my work henceforth.
Seated woman, 1979
First painting in highly personal graphic style. In essence a direct translation of a collage and ink drawing to large format oil and acrylic on cotton.
Yellow executive, 1980
First achievement in a dynamic personal style, bringing together execution and content. Brakethrough after a difficult and unproductive period of seven years in which I struggled with style-elements foreign to me.
The legitimate regime, 1983
First of the tryptichs exploring great themes on the origins and abuse of authority, like, in this case, the legitimate regime. Governments that entertain us with sports and wargames, keeping the society hostage in a dome of false pretensions.
Breaking through the rainbow, 1989
First in the metropolis series, symbolising the modern, dynamic, kapitalist world without limitations.
Saudades do Brasil, 1989
First on the theme of the environment, tropical forests and the disappearance of great animals.
De hoed maakt de vrouw, 1989
Variation on the collage and ink technique, with photo-transfers.
New development with figuration placed in the background through the application of nearly monochrome colourwashes. Prominence of narrow vertical white lines and the usage of seperate panels within the painting.
Belphoebe, Chastity, grace and courage,2003
A series inspired by "The faery Quenee" the icon of the renaissance literature by Spenser, published in 1590 - 1596. Spenser considered his work "a historical fiction" which men should read for "
Al-Nakba, Long shadows nr. 1, 2007
Paintings based on historical photographs from 1948 refering to the Palestinian Nakba.
The blue man,2007
The use of street photography in the assembly of photocollages
Political issues that convert the western world in a prison for a brainwashed populace.
She (La signora di tutti), 2014
Paintings in a realistic style based on screenshots of the cinema.
De baadster van Rembrandt van Rijn gezien in het Rijks Museum,2017
Famous women stepping out of their paintings. The use of pastel crayon for the main character on a backdrop in thin oil paint on cotton.
