Carina Janssens is not only exhibiting her sculptures. But also her monumental wall art too. CARINA JANSSENS strength is in particular her desire to experiment especialy with materials. At the same time she loves to try out new techniques too.
Clay, not only IRON, but also MARMER. FABRIC, PAPER. and GLASS. In the first place her sculptures are made very professional. Janssens artwork is to point out beautiful indoors and outdoors.
Alexander Blaak is from Amsterdam. He is introducing now his realistic oil PAINTINGS. He paints sometimes famous people like for example Sofia Loren.
BLAAK is a self-taught man and studied at the FOTOVAKSCHOOL and MEDIA ACADEMY. Alex worked also as an ART-consultant. FILM-operator and mediator. He used to work equaly important in the ANALOG PHOTO BRANCH. TELEVISION and MOVIE-business.
YANETTE WALD v. H. was born in PERU. She grew up in COLOMBIA. Wald v. H. will be showing her beautiful CERAMICS. She designs indeed lovely JEWELRY too.
The artist WALD v. H. came to the Netherlands in 1978. Moving to HOLLAND was of course for her life changing. Yanette loves explecitly faces in her artwork (just like I do).
Yanette Wald van Hemelrijck is inspired – and definitely learned ceramics from her parents. You can truly see that South-America influenced her art as well.
Last but not least is the artist ANKIE LOMMEN. She will present some big sculptures. This artist loves to play together with materials like polyester and WOOD. But she works also with latex and of course sensational steel.
Ankie kan be really moved when she suddenly sees something. For instance a running dog, or a tiny twig in the wind. Seeing that can be in fact an inspiration for another artwork.
Movement, static power, impermanence and yet undestructable are her topics. However, STEEL is of cource very strong, but it can also RUST. That’s why powerful steel is also a temporary – and vulnarable material. Revolutionary steel can challenge this sculptor explicitly to create something new.
Ankie Lommen wanted mostly the uniquely round shape, because it’s namely soft, female and endless. On the other hand Lommen is also inspired and touched specifically by found materials. Steel works for her indeed as a true miracle, especialy in combination with other revolutionary materials.
Sunday, MARCH 19, 3:00 p.m. is the finissage!
