Visje bij de Thee
My latest (2022) surreal and humoristic series. The title is a wink to Dutch writer Annie M.G. Schmidt whose work I love so much. A combination of images from a vintage book about fish and other sea creatures, and images from an old embroidery book with photos and patterns for table cloths, throw pillows and such. I made a series of exactly 10cm to be sold through 10x10artist.com. Other, bigger sizes can be seen here. All collages are available in a 30x30cm passe partout and, if you like, in a light wood colored frame.
I made miniature collages for Pakje Kunst Amsterdam too, those have already been sold!
Artist statement: “This is about how it is to be a woman, about sensuality, about to give life, to come from a mother who herself came from hers etc; so about where we came from, if we can believe Darwin we all came from te sea. The first animals in the world lived in the sea and some of these first animals can still be found there.”
A combination of images from old magazines about FKK (‘Freikörperkultur’) from Germany (fifties / sixties) with books about ‘lower life forms’. The texts in the collages add value to the works. This time the collages are ‘cut and scanned’ (not pasted). I have been experimenting with using both sides of the images / pages. The whole series has been on show at the exhibition Atelier Open Papier, March 2019 at the Bonte Zwaan, Amsterdam.
Pages of women from old erotic magazines, hand cut and intertwined with pages from a house plant catalogue of the same period (sixties/seventies).
Resulted in a collage magazine, self published in a small one-time edition is out now! Now €10 per item (was €15), postage costs not included. For sale at the Stedelijk Museum Shop. Can also be ordered through me: firstname.lastname@example.org
