Bastet – 04-10-19
It is World Animal Day and I miss my cat Furia. She sat for me as a model a couple of times and I thought I’d honour her today.
The artist and his model – 31-03-19
This drawing is a protest and and prestudy altogether. The latter for the sake of a bigger painting and the first because I need to be more clear about nudity once again.
Isis – 25-01-19
Some time ago I saw underwater excavation pictures of Heracleion, an ancient Egyptian city submerged.
One thing in another – 05-01-19
In my egyptian series I try to excavate treasures from the past.
Bastet – 01-01-19
My Egyptian series is an addition to my ‘j’accuse’ painting ‘The Revelation of Bettie Page’. My New Year’s resolution for this year: I dare all algorithms of social media scanning the internet for nipples like the Matrix’s sentinels for Neo.
Cleopatra – 22-12-18
When I saw the reference picture I was inspired to turn the model sitting in a bath with lots of foam around her,into a donkey milk bath with Cleopatra in it for the sake of my Egyptian ambition.
La Langue Verte – 14-12-18
I liked the triangular position of the model’s body and put her in an Egyptian scenery, thinking of my roundism style relating to hieroglyphics and Egyptian arts in general. I always liked the intense need for styling and I consider the depictions of the human body by the old Egyptians to be one of mankind’s greatest achievements.
Initiatrix – 03-12-18
The third art work in my new series on Egypt. I experimented with my personal style ‘roundism’ in combination with realism and surrealism.
Oudaen – 26-11-18
Last year I was at Oudaen, a city castle at Utrecht, Netherlands which now is a crowdy hotspot for party people. I was dining near the window in the corner with hundreds of people around me but a single cat was lying quietly by the window.
An archeological memory of Bettie Page – 13-11-18
The reference picture I used was slightly different from the one I used for ‘The revelation of Bettie Page (2018)’.
