Sloten, Friesland Province
The Frisian capital of Leeuwarden has been selected as European Cultural Capital 2018. The idea for this year’s new version of The Colourfield Performance is to create a collaborative work of art in the form of ultimately 499 paintings. This fits well with the year’s theme Community. The work of art has the dimensions of a land-art style project: in an open landscape easels are erected on wooden stakes. The easels with white panels are arranged to create an equilateral triangle of 233 meters each side. The number 233 comes from the Fibonacci Series, which is intimately connected to the Golden Section. The shape of a triangle was chosen because this mathematical form behaves autonomously towards the structure of the Frisian landscape.
During the four months of the exhibition 34.000 persons visited the Colorfield Performance in Sloten.

THE RED JACKET
A diptych as self-portrait
As an artist I portray myself with my work: sculptures, paintings and graphics. This self-portrait consists of a diptych of new work: a spatial and a one-dimensional piece of art. Totally different technics, though both carrying the same title: The Red Jacket.
Red is the colour of vitality and energy, of fire and love, and of struggle to the death. Red is a warm colour asking for attention and it is associated with the body. The wearing of red clothes expresses one’s inclination to follow a personal track: look, this is my style, this is me!
