Solo exhibition De Factorij till 3/9/22
CC De Factorij invited me to realize a solo exhibition in May. New works from the series 'Awakening', 'As if the day never existed' and 'Daydream' will be shown.
The 'Awakening' series evokes an awakening world that oscillates between daydream, night and reality. In each case, the relationship between the inner world of human experience and the visible world is at play. Seemingly banal images are charged with meaning and draw the viewer into a tranquil dream world. Art is not what you see, but what you make others see' (Georgia O'Keeffe).
EDEN arts festival
EDEN arts festival will show 6 works from my new series 'Awakening'.
The Eden/Genesis theme has always been a source of inspiration for artists. The exhibition brings work of national and international artists. With a fresh look they interpret the different layers of meaning of the theme in confrontation with our society.

Group exhibition CC Hasselt
And yet even the night is not hopeless as long as there is snow
For a long time the night was artistically reserved for musicians, writers, actors.
For a long time the night remained hidden territory for the 'light writers'. What was it that finally drove them to make images in, of and with the darkness?
The willfulness and stubbornness of the night, but certainly also technology. Thus, for photographers, the night became a playground for the sublime, often portrayed with caution. A caution that testifies to respect for the dual associations of the night: death versus life, light versus dark, end versus beginning, visible versus invisible. The night, place in between and time in between, which you can enter as a visitor of the exhibition through the poetic entrance Insomnia by author Luuk Gruwez. Behind it is the work of 9 photographers who each in their own way portray the twilight, the darkness, the crackling light of the night.
