Affordable Art Fair Maastricht 2014

Affordable Art Fair Maastricht

The Affordable Art Fair will be in Maastricht for the first time!  This edition of the Affordable Art Fair  will take place from Thursday 3th of April to Sunday 6th of April 2014.

I will be there also with new work from my “Exodus series” represented by Gallery Pien Rademakers at booth 42.

And it’s for the first time that I will do (a sort) of interview together with Daan Zuijderwijk on Saturday at 16.00h. I don’t know exactly what to expect, because it’s a new initiative called the LAB project space, but it’s going to be fun!

Quote: “The LAB project space is a  mix of interviewsmeetingsguided tours and short films. Every art lover, passionate expert, entrepreneur, or academic will have the chance, to learn, share and discover more about the art world and see the Affordable Art Fair from new and different perspective”.

So there you have it 😉  I’m looking forward to seeing you!

Have fun and enjoy the fair.

Opening ZomerExpo 2013

Yesterday was the opening of the ZomerExpo/SummerExpo 2013 in the Gemeentemuseum of The Hague.

This is the third SummerExpo to be held by the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and Stichting ArtWorlds. SummerExpo is the Netherlands’ biggest open-entry art exhibition. The theme of this year’s show is Earth, a subject that has inspired a multitude of artists over past centuries. A jury of artists, journalists, art critics, gallery holders and museum curators has selected 239 works for inclusion. The wide range of paintings, photographs, sculptures and installations on show give an impression of Earth in all its many manifestations. The show will run from 8 June to 15 September.

I’m proud to be included this year as one of the artists. Below you’ll find an impression of the Expo.

FotoFestival Naarden Festival-Off 2013

Friday 19 April – The shops, housed in ‘The Arsenal’ in Naarden-Vesting, show the
work of 11 Photo Academy students and alumni during Festival-OFF, both
inside, on the first floor, and on the outside.
The participating photographers are: Franshoek, Vincent Houtman, Godelieve Krekelenberg,
Ingrid Putker, Edwin Rontberg, Jeroen Quick, Sabrina Scarpa, Laura Schapendonk, Robert

The OFF Festival in Naarden existed since the second Photo Festival in 1991, when The Photo Group Delta-F  had their exhibition in a shop window on the Markstraat under the
name “Festival-OFF. The initiative has grown into a collective of both professional and amateur photographers who organise their own exhibition during The Photo Festival Naarden. The name-OFF Festival is ‘borrowed’ from the known photo festival in Arles, France. More information about the Festival OFF and various exhibition venues can be found on






































Zomerexpo 2013

The ‘Gemeentemuseum Den Haag’ and the foundation Artworlds  organize, for the third time, the Summer Expo (Zomerexpo) in the Netherlands. This is the biggest visual arts exhibition an artist can enter by means of an open enrollment.

There are three locations you can enter:

-Loods 6 in Amsterdam

-Las Palmas in Rotterdam

-and TAC in Eindhoven

For each location there are two rounds. When you are selected in the first round, you can go to the second round in the evening.

I showed up in Rotterdam at noon with three of my computer manipulated photographs. In the first round two works of mine were selected. After a long wait and exhilarating day another jury chose one of my works in the evening. Needles to say I was very glad that they chose me as one of the artists. Out of 3000 submissions, 250 works of art were finally chosen.

The work will be showed at an online gallery, and in the Gemeente Museum of the Hague from the 8th of June until the 15th of September.

The event will be broadcast on national television. It’s a program called ‘Avro’s kunst uur’, so who knows I will be on tv (hope not 😉
