I am happy to say the prints of my installation Momentum will be shown and for sale in the exhibition The Art of Nature – The Nature of Art at gallery Kunstliefde.
Nature is a source of beauty and inspiration. Often she is depicted in landscapes and still lives. In this exhibition, nature itself becomes subject, motive, matter. From natural processes, structures and organisms, artworks arise that provide a new outlook and context. Nature becomes art and art becomes nature.
When: 23 September – 22 October
Where: Gallery Kunstliefde, Nobelstraat 12a, Utrecht
Opening: Sunda 24 September, 16.00

On Saturday 27 May 2017, myself and Roland van Dierenconk will give a masterclass ‘Extracting Pigments From Algae’ at WAAG Society.
In this masterclass we will show participants what kind of pigments are secluded in algae and how they can be isolated. When the pigments are extracted, we will show them some applicabilities, like how to use them to make paint or ink. The methods we will show are applicable to organic matter in general, so participants can use their new found knowledge on basically anything mother nature provides.
Would you like to join? Find more info about the event on the website of WAAG Society HERE and the Meetup event HERE. Be quick, because there is a limited amount of places available!

As announced I am currently exhibiting my new work Estuary and my research project Genesis at MU Artspace. The exhibition is on show until February 26th, 2017.
The colors in the installation Estuary change over time. I have just reinstalled the installation, be sure to pass by and observe the beauty of decay, and the bloom of life that is happening as a result of the parameters set for the artwork. All the colors as shown in pictures are real and have not been altered by a filter or otherwise.
