Koninklijk Paleis Amsterdam

Royal Award for Modern Painting

 

The Royal Award for Modern painting is a prize given by King to young talented painters. The prize has a long history and already exists since 1947. The winners of 2019 were Leo Arnold, Cian-Yu Bai and Machteld Rullens. Together with them twelve other participants were chosen to exhibit their works. The exhibition takes place in Paleis op de Dam, which is the palace in the city centre of Amsterdam, a beautiful decorated building  build between 1648 and 1665 as city hall based on the design of the architect Jacob van Campen. The exhibition forms an interesting contrast with the building. The contemporary paintings in a very classical environment.  The design of the catalogue plays with these contrasts and the silver images in it are based on the statues in the palace.

Unknown upcoming band play in local venues like shops and bars. This year the festival moved to another part of the city, which became the inspiration for identity for the festival.

China megalopolis

Endless cities

 When I stayed in China I became fascinated with the megalopolis cities that are everywhere around there. With names I never heard of, interchangeable with skyscrapers, old town, building blocks etc. Endless floating clouds of buildings. But somewhere hidden still a tiny bit of their own identity. China megalopolis is an unfinished project with print on layers of glass showing a visualisation of my experiences.

Het meest geloofde sprookje

Het meest geloofde sprookje/The most believed fairy tale is collaboration work with Anne-Marie Geurink. She worked on a fairy tale about our capitalistic money system. She did the story and research and asked me to create images based on her story. Which became a play of circles and patterns in red and blue PMS. Together we designed the book. The patterns on the inside of the pages are taken from security envelopes: the patterns protect the content like passwords, account numbers or other confidential financial information from prying eyes. Selected as Best Dutch Book 2015.
