This november I participated in a group show in the Deep Tanks Studio whose name, ‘Nudus’, left little doubt on the subject matter. Although I’m not a very good draftsman, I always have loved drawing, painting, photographing and photoshopping nude figures. Me and a zillion others of course. But it’s a subject that can never be exhausted, as this show once again illustrated.
The other artists in this show were photographer Kristopher Johnson and the painter Shungaboy.

I had one sculpture in the show, 4 collages and about a hundred paintings on paper,of which I show a selection below. Most of them are measuring 12 by 10 by inches (32 by 24 cm). I mostly used acrylic paint, charcoal, ink, metal powders. The bulk of them were done in the 1990’s, some before, some after. Some came into being in collaboration with my friend and fellow recycling artist Robin M Jordan.
“Wind me op en ik zing” (“Turn me on and I sing”) (1996) 29 by 13 by 6 inches. Gold paint and iron powder washes on plaster. In its secret place, this beauty has a music box.

That’s it for now. Have a warm december…
