START ART OF WEATHERMAP SWITZERLAND

May 25, 2019

Climate in Switzerland is changing. Most notably, there has been significantly less snow since the 1980's. And changes in precipitation are now becoming apparent. According to current climate scenarios, the warming will continue into the future. Reason to start a striking colored "Art of Weathermap" painting of Switzerland.

"200 YEARS LATER"

May 3, 2019

"200 Years Later" is based on "Allegory of Spring", a beautiful painting from the Dutch master Georgius van Os. This still life from 1817 is permanently shown in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Because this painting is about 200 years old and Georgius happens to be family from the past, I decided to rethink and repaint this masterwork. I started this painting project in November 2018 with preparations, sketches and visited The Rijksmuseum several times to take that closer look to get the precise understanding of the "Allegory of Spring". Just stand still and see. So in the end I am grateful to the people of The Rijksmuseum for their help and consultation.  

The size (56 - 40 inch, 140-100 cm) of "200 Years Later" is approximately the same as the original. To create an extra friendly connection. Actually the new painting is very different from the original in color, style and meaning. It is a special painting in every respect and it shows - like all of my paintings - the accelerating time we are living in. And last but not least, "200 Years Later" wants to show happiness which is the starting point of my work.

"ALLEGORY OF SPRING"

February 17, 2019

Here's the "Allegory of Spring". This still life from the Dutch master Georgius van Os is permanently shown in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Because this painting is 200 years old and Georgius happens to be family from the past, I decided to repaint this masterwork. The size (56 - 40 inch, 140-100 cm) will be the same as the original to create a connection. I have visited The Rijksmuseum several times to take that closer look and to get the right understanding of the "Allegory of Spring". Just stand still and see. So in the end, I am grateful to the people The Rijksmuseum for their help and consultation.

Now, my aim is to show a still life full of "Spring", so my painting will be really different in style and color. And my challenge to make a true reset. That means that I have to look over and over again and make several sketches, especially on certain areas of the painting. On Instagram and Facebook I will show how things are going and how the painting appears. I hope to get the painting ready before.... Spring. To be continued.
