LATEST NEWS

Printmaking Today has published in the Summer issue 2022 a 4 page profile of my work as a printmaker, written by Richard Noyce. The article is illustrated with large photos of my mezzotints.

It will be a busy exhibition time this autumn. With the international mezzotint group SHIM I will be showing in Jill Krufick Fine Art in New York, from 10 September till 10 October.

The next exhibition from 2-30 October is the jubilee show in Museum Kranenburgh, Bergen NH, to celebrate 75 years of the KCB (Kunstenaars Centrum Bergen). The title of this exhibition is De Toekomst in Nu — the Future is Now, and I will be showing mezzotints and drawings of the Glacier Lagoons in Iceland.

In October/November is the Print Triennial in the Netherlands and I am participating in two exhibitions. First of all in Kunsthuis Waterland from 14 October – 19 November with the show ONTmoeten. Then, from 6 November – 31 December, Grafiekgroep Bergen will exhibit in the KCB gallery in Museum Kranenburgh during GRAFIEK 22. More information will follow.

ANDERS DAN ANDERS – kunstenaars in lockdown

During the lockdowns in the Netherlands in 2020 and 2021, many artists, free from commitments and the pressure of exhibitions, but with plenty of time, they felt liberated and started to make different work. This exhibition shows a selection of works made by artists of LKV de Ploegh during that period. I changed my garden house into a painting studio and made two new lockdown paintings. I also started to experiment with linocuts.

III NOVOSIBIRSK INTERNATIONAL TRIENNIAL OF CONTEMPORARY GRAPHIC ARTS

I was invited to be the Curator of the Dutch entry for this Triennial. I have chosen printmakers who reflect different aspects of the Netherlands: how, maybe as a result of living in this crowded country, some artists create a personal space for their figures where only they exist;  how, on the other hand, there is also the wide, low country, with its endless horizons, rivers, skies, dunes and polders; and finally there are those artists (and I included myself here), who need to escape the denseness of the homeland and travel. Their images tell of other cultures and natures. The selected artists are: Hans Andringa, Bea van der Heijden, Marcelle Hanselaar, Elsbeth Cochius, Jadranka Njegovan, Siemen Dijkstra, Jan Naezer, Gea Karhof, Nan Mulder and Rolf Weijburg.
