Painting: Acrylic, graingel medium, print and heavygel medium on Aluminium, Wood, Paper and Canvas.
My work is a mix of different pictures/images and paints which I combine on the computer and canvas to create a new image. My favorite subject is the female face. Most of the portraits that I create are a mix of four to five different faces, mostly of different race and origin. On my computer, I create a new, non-existing person out of them. Besides creating and building new persons I also take pictures in my studio of models that I use. Together with these pictures and the pictures of old walls, grunge posters and all kinds of other interesting subjects I create a new image. I also use already existing pictures that I manipulate in photoshop and create a new image with. When the digital part is ready I print the image and start painting over it. I create thick structures and a lot of layers of paint and gel over them. In this way, I try to make the digital image tangible again. My work is not so much about the explanation and concept it is a game and all about the image. I start with no idea in general but by looking at images that interest me and by mixing them, slowly a new image evolves.
the works are also made on request in any size of preference. These works are a mix of print, paint, grain gel, heavy gel and math coating. The works are made by hand, individually a bit different in editions of max. 25 pieces.
This one is directly available and looks exactly like these images.
