Sort of a separate diptych. A well-attuned duo in pediatric physiotherapy and speech therapy is the addressee of these chairs. This Chair II and the other Chair I, their specialty can be recognized by the placed objects. Knowledge and resources in the drawers and connected via the cord to a unity that is beautifully balanced.

Four of us gathered around an edge. Or is it a list? Yes, a frame that frames a piece of wall that this quartet is looking at. Art appreciation avant la lettre: wall is art.
Sit back after an intensive painting session: that’s okay! And then you know you are covered in the back by the fruits of your own efforts.
After some thinking, such a classic folding beach chair turned out to be very easy to process in a kind of continuous pattern. The ultimate sea/beach colors still remain navy blue and white placed on the sand. Where else? Of course a drop shadow because of the sunny weather.
The drawing immediately reminded me of the beach in Rimini in Italy where most of the beach was claimed by hotels and where their territory was marked by rows of carefully arranged beach chairs. A kind of traffic jam for the sea, Stranded from there.
From square to (color)circle. My past at the academy, in which we learned to mix colors quite thoroughly on the basis of Johannes Itten‘s color theory, resulting in a self-designed color range, played up when I was working on this basic drawing. This spatial and at the same time flat shape asked for a colorful interpretation: Sitting at Itten.
In astronomy time circle is a time space in which a number of phenomena repeat themselves.
A circle of tubular frame chairs on a well-polished tiled floor. On? Just above! The intimate connection of this séance leads to elevation. Isn’t that what we would want in every circle discussion?
Chairman plays with the pixel, although in this case the pixel is also a chair seat. When connected to a large area, these pixels can form any image depending on the arrangement of the colors. In this case it is a portrait of the chair man (the undersigned) or Chairman. The president of this chair world.
The first work where I, more or less born out of necessity, worked with cutting out the residual shapes was Rietveld, dedicated to how could it be otherwise Gerrit Rietveld’s Zigzag-chair. An at least as revolutionary invention by another Dutchman certainly deserves a podium in my oeuvre: the cantilever-chair. That honor belongs to Mart Stam.
(The dutch word for tribe is ‘stam’, by chance the surname of the tribeholder of all the cantilever chairs)
Running, resting and therefore also playing chairs: A handstand in this case.
“We see a kind of section from a massive and all but endless row of swaying and wobbling chairs. The reference to the founder of the Chinese Communist Party in the 1920s, Mao Tse-Tung, is evident. Nevertheless such a title also allows thoughts about other large-scale migrations of living creatures. Think of the wildebeest in the African plains, or flows of refugees, escaping from whatever atrocities.” (from Chairs and Titles by Chris Manders in All in the Family, 2016)
