Alphons Winters prize 2014



This evening the first of six regional exhibitions for the biannual Alphons Winters prize was opened in the town hall of Kerkrade. I was pleased to have my entry "(Sur)Real Reflections" selected for this first round exhibition. In the upcoming weeks a selection committee will select works from the regional exhibitions for the second round final exhibition in Maastricht later this year. Vanavond werd de eerste van zes regionale tentoonstellingen voor de tweejaarlijkse Alphons Wintersprijs geopend in het raadhuis van Kerkrade. Ik was blij met de selectie van mijn inzending "(Sur)Reële Reflecties" voor deze eerste ronde tentoonstelling. In de komende weken zal een selectiecommissie werken uit de regionale tentoonstellingen selecteren voor de eindtentoonstelling in Maastricht.

Trois Femmes


Another painting in the style of Christianne Knops. Again, it's more the work process of Knops that I followed rather than the style itself. It's a process of starting out drawing an abstracted figurative composition, then painting in transparent layers, here and there losing the line sketch, then, where desired, picking up the line work again not necessarily following the original composition, but often correcting or adding to it. Then again adding transparent layers etc. and also opaque patches where ever desired.

Acrylic, pastel
Canvas
50 x 60 cm

Composition roughly based on a quick sketch (below) I did earlier based on a photo. The painting turned out quite different.

Quick sketch, more or less meant as an underpainting. Coming back to it, I found it had enough life in it to capture it in this stage.

Acrylic
Canvas
30 x 30 cm
