the beautiful Indian women: Spring, Summer en Autumn
With this new series of paintings, I am responding to the major changes we are currently experiencing. Many of our habits and certainties have disappeared due to the Coronavirus and that feels 'bare'. But at the same time, we are also 'open' to new roads, possibilities and challenges...
THE NAKED TRUTH,
is about the constant stream of news we are in. All news forms and Social Media determine our lives almost 24/7. I think it is important that we are aware that we do not always have to be 'on', that we can also turn that world 'off' for a while. That there may also be 'nothing' on a regular basis. In the Naked Truth I have therefore left a part unedited. Finding your balance in all the hectic...

PICTURING THE PAST,
in a time of change and renewal we grasp and look back at what is familiar in our lives. Our past, our foundation, that is our foundation. Picturing the Past is therefore painted over dozens of photos from the past....our roots.

is about the rich history of the nude in art. Over the centuries, many beautiful paintings of the female nude have been made. Botticelli (1484), Rembrandt (1654) and Breitner (1887) and many others have made beautiful nude paintings of women. Whether or not naked goes like a wave through time. Periods when a lot of nudity was visible and also times when it was covered with taboos. Histoire d'Or is about this beautiful history depicted in a contemporary woman.

"In today's world it is becoming more and more difficult to expose yourself, to show who you are and what you stand for. Outwardly, we are becoming more and more alike, we choose what is safe. Hypes therefore become the norm and authenticity disappears. The painting is about this, apparently outwardly they are two identical women, but inwardly they are different. The painting emphasizes that we should not only look at the 'beautiful' outside, but above all that we should remain curious about who we are inside.

Life flies by quickly. We are more likely to look ahead to what is to come than to enjoy what is now. My serie 'TRANSIENCE' is about that. All paintings in this collection share the color rust. Rust represents the aging processes, which, contrary to what people often think, can be very beautiful. There are elements of transience and beauty in every painting.
In my Studio&Gallery 'JAC', Kapelstraat 27 in Bussum I would like to tell you about my new collection. Contact me for an appointment
Our eyes can visibly express love, sadness, joy, surprise, humor, pain, emotion, excitement and desire.
I'm looking for that one look that touches me!
It is always a great challenge to make this into a powerful and beautiful PAINTING: an EYECATCHER.
I like to work in series, Ubuntu, Transience, Strong & Fragile. I would be happy to discuss all options with you
