Restrained

300.00

Anyone who has ever played pacman will probably understand that from time to time the teeth have to be inserted somewhere. Especially if you have already encountered the Backman drawing in my digital display. The first and only thing that is in the immediate vicinity is the list …

(S)Eat

225.00

The two screws in the back of this chair are like eyes and extending this way of seeing the space between the back and the seat is a mouth. To accentuate this I added the teeth. See also the drawings Backman and Verbeten.

School

250.00

If chairs can walk, run and rest, they might also be able to think, right? In the pencil drawings Comic, I am not a chair and Telepathy, the comic language clearly finds its entrance into my work. In this work, which is part of an unspecified series, we look at the thoughts of Mart Stam‘s S31. Is he thinking about his own school days?

On my mind II

250.00

If chairs can walk, run and rest, they might also be able to think, right? In the pencil drawings Comic, I am not a chair and Telepathy, the comic language clearly finds its entrance into my work. In this work, which is part of an unspecified series, we look at the fantasies of a graceful armchair by Thonet, whose thoughts turn to Rietveld’s sturdy crate chair.

Arachnofobia

250.00

If chairs can walk, run and rest, they might also be able to think, right? In the pencil drawings Comic, I am not a chair and Telepathy, the comic language clearly finds its entrance into my work. In this work, which is part of an unspecified series, we look at the fantasies of my ‘primal chair’.

Babel’s end

2,950.00

The proverbial Babylonische confusion of tongues results in too much leeway in the carefully stacked chairs of the Tower. This leads to decline and collapse that we are witnessing here.
I used the cutting technique, which I first applied in Rietveld and later on in Descendants, again to gain extra depth, a wonderful effect.

 

Unlock

275.00

A paradox has been created by providing Cees Braakman’s SB02 with ten instead of three fixings for the backrest, and placing it behind bars. This creates a kind of Gordian knot or ouroboros-like impossibility.
See also the drawing Update from 2019. This creates a login look similar to a telephone.

Leerdammer chair II

275.00

Leerdam because of the famous Dutch cheese with holes, of course. The work goes back to the drawing ‘Leerdammer chair’  I made in the year 2000.
Where in that drawing only the drawn chair showed holes, in this one it didn’t stop there.

Pair

Two designs by Cees Braakman for Pastoe (a renowned Dutch furniture manufacturer) are here together as a pair from a family album.

Escher in Oirschot II

One of the first drawings that I made during my graduation phase at the Academy for Visual Education in Tilburg and that passed the selection was Escher in Oirschot. Escher because of the spatial joke and Oirschot because of the origin of the drawn chair. This one stood in the kitchen of the student house where my wife Sofia lived at that time. This is a variation where the Escher-like twist is in the play with frame, environment and drawing.

My Style

If chairs can walk, run and rest, they might also be able to think, right? In the pencil drawings Comic, I am not a chair and Telepathy, the comic language clearly finds its entrance into my work. In this work, which is part of an unspecified series, we look at the fantasies of Gerrit Rietveld‘s red-blue chair, who reflects on Theo van Doesburg‘s chair.

Dimensions II

300.00

The Building Plate that I drew in 2003 is a precursor. In this case, there is already some ‘building activity’ whereby the drawing takes place in two dimensions (but actually still in one).

Deckchair

160.00

A tired chair, you don’t see that very often. Give him a well-deserved rest.

Weave

475.00

Two drawings of a ladderback-chair by Charles-Rennie McIntosh are woven into one, creating his own problems that do contribute to the image. The drawing is related to a drawing I made earlier in 2019 Intertwined past.

Pallisaden

175.00

See ok, but sit? Let’s get started.

Rietveld refurbished V

375.00

Gerrit Rietveld’s most conceptual designs have not only a spartan appearance but also ditto seating characteristics. For real hardliners, placing a loose pillow is probably already more tha a bridge to far. What then to think of the upholsterer who has indulged himself here in Rietveld’s zigzag-chair? Of course in the colors of the house style though.
