Public Commissions

November 2017 – A fantastic joint commission opportunity with my artist friend Richard Kemerink op Schiphorst in the Netherlands, for the ‘openbare schilderkunst’ project, an open gallery/museum project under a bridge in Zwolle! We decided to combine the recreation of the classical self-portraits of Zwolle artists Aleida Greve and Gerard ter Borch with a band of contemporary design, – the boards are 203cm x 130cm. The boats and ships across Gerard relate to the historic Zwolle wealth creation via the shipbuilding industry, the parrot in Aleida’s hand got replaced with a seagull to connect with the seagulls across the very empty blue sky field in her original. We completed the two boards in two weeks from start to finish.
