Every painting tells a story. "Other Stories" show special moments, places, situations and... other stories. Or combinations. They are imaginative, realistic and are created with “what if’s”. In the end, the paintings tell us to look from a completely different angle to feel the changes we perceive.
Other Stories include the serie "Flowers". These paintings have a special connection. They are all inspired by Dutch Master and old family Georgius van Os (19th century). The original work of Georgius van Os is permanently shown in The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Because of the family relation with Georgius van Os, The Rijksmuseum was happy to consulted me on this point, which I very much appreciated. This helped me to rejuvenate his work to enjoy it in a lighthearted way.
About 10 years ago Jos Brölmann created a character. Actually, he was searching for "something" that looked around and could see a lot at the same time. A seemingly simple character with a sharp eye, looking without prejudice. It was during a period when he felt that so many things started to change enormously. Even more than that, to accelerate. In an environment full of information. And all those changes had one similarity. They all started with almost unnoticed smaller changes. So this character should be a figure that stays tuned and look around what’s going on. And enjoys it really.
What he draw was not one, but a group of birds. And he called them "Nosybirds®" and gave them a true motto " What have you seen today?"
