Reflection

285.00

A chair mirrors, the more the entire diptych is mirrored. The next step in a series of works in which mirroring is the key. Spiegel and Spiegel II are other examples.

I’m not a chair

160.00
An unmistakable expression of this chair, eh drawn chair. A playful reference to the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte and in particular to his famous painting ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe‘.

 

Drilling chair

A framed drawing annex luxury bookcase seemed to me a suitable gift for people who made a substantial contribution to my book ‘All in the family‘. I liked that so much that it was the start of a series. This was one of the first. My own office chair combined with a drill.

Ejection seat III

285.00
When my book ‘All in the family’ was published, I made a gift in the form of a framed drawing annex luxury bookcase for a number of people who have helped me in any way. That inspired me to make more and this is (another) one of them.
See Duet II, Pin and Hole, Fanzone and Painter’s Chair III.
So this drawing includes that book.

Perpetuüm mobile III

1,275.00

A series of linked chairs are depicted from the (round) edge in such a way that the armrests form a kind of inwardly turned gear wheel. The opening offers a view of a kind of galaxy that intensifies the cyclical movement. No beginning, no end, just time.

Rocking chair IV

Perhaps the fourth and most curious in the series of rocking chairs. The drawn chair joins with the frame and thus becomes a kind of pamphlet against the wall. A pamphlet for the arts!

Rietveld Refurbished

285.00

The somewhat spartan Redblue chair by Rietveld could be handled by an unwitting enthusiastic furniture maker for more comfort. Still, it does rub even if I just draw it. Gerrit Rietveld turning in his grave?

Framing Rietveld

285.00

The first Framing Rietveld from 2017 was the reason for a series in 2019. This one preceded the other four, although I didn’t know that at the time. It ended up above the ‘bed’ of the ‘and breakfast’ in B&B-gallery De Kunstpraktijk in Veldhoven, as part of my exhibition there in the summer of 2019. When exhibited as ‘Sleep’, a good night’s sleep guaranteed!
See Framing Rietveld II, III, IV en V.

Pas de Deux X (Balancing Berkovich)

700.00

One of the most recent in a long series of ‘dance duets’ between two chairs of the same type. All works in this series, mostly watercolors but also some pencil drawings, are characterized by the fact that two chairs of the same type meet at some point and there merge entirely in the spirit of an intense pas de deux. In this case it is a chair designed by Elmar Berkovich.

Pas de Deux XI

The most recent in a long series of ‘dance duets’ between two chairs of the same type. All works in this series, mostly watercolors but also some pencil drawings, are characterized by the fact that two chairs of the same type meet at some point and there merge entirely in the spirit of an intense pas de deux. In this case it is a chair designed by the Dane Arne Jacobsen.

Babel try out

3,975.00
A kind of pattern is created by these carefully stacked often iconic chairs. The low position and the backlight create a somewhat apocalyptic atmosphere. The seats are reduced a bit to their silhouette. In that sense this is a somewhat freer and more colorful variation on Stapeling en Babel, both linocuts. This film gives an insight in the making of this painting.

Quartet II

1,575.00

Patterns of the crowd. Seats in an empty stadium or theater gently sloping for optimal visibility. The choice for this extremely horizontal format has everything to do with this and further increases the tension between the quartet and the audience in the hall. The chosen color scheme and the contrast in it underline this.
For all the chairs (except for the quartet) three molds are used, left, frontal and right.

Rietveld III

550.00

Gerrit Rietveld’s other equally famous chair, the Zigzag chair, also turned out to fit well in an isometric grid. So after Rietveld, completely full of zigzag-chairs, now these completely full of redblue chairs.

Portrait 10

90.00

The 10th portrait of a chair by the backrest. This one is from the first series of nine from 2011. After that it was ‘quiet’ in this area until in 2017 again nine new ones appeared. Followed by another twelve in 2018 and finally another three in 2019. I usually show them grouped or also as small accents between other pencil drawings. Portrait 14, 34 and 43.

 

Portrait 11

90.00

The 11th portrait of a chair by the backrest. This one is from the first series of nine from 2011. After that it was ‘quiet’ in this area until in 2017 again nine new ones appeared. Followed by another twelve in 2018 and finally another three in 2019. I usually show them grouped or also as small accents between other pencil drawings. Portrait 14, 34 and 43.

 

Portrait 12

90.00

The 12th portrait of a chair by the backrest. This one is from the first series of nine from 2011. After that it was ‘quiet’ in this area until in 2017 again nine new ones appeared. Followed by another twelve in 2018 and finally another three in 2019. I usually show them grouped or also as small accents between other pencil drawings. Portrait 16, 29 and 43.
