The Making of....
When the theme of the Dutch Quilters guild 2022 Art quilt competition became known, I started thinking about it.
At first I didn't want to participate. I didn't feel like making a quilt. And the dimensions for 3D, 30 x 30 x 30 cm, were very small...
Sometime in January 2022 I suddenly had an idea. A 3D globe. But how do you make something like that? Due to the lockdown, we were unable to go to the store. On the internet I found a Styrofoam sphere at a shop for flower decoration materials. Convenient! Exactly 30 cm, in two parts.
But how does such a thing stand? I was reminded of the globe on such a pen, a bit slanting. A pen in it didn't seem convenient to me. So then sawed off a piece off the bottom with a bread knife. That way I could also work on it better. The top also went off, I joined it again with my stapler, so that a cavity was created. The sphere consisted of two parts which in the end I assembled and also connected with the stapler.
Oh yes it had to be a quilt...
Doomsday scenario: an Apocalypse of planet earth that explodes.
Too high concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, rainforest deforestation, intense industry etc. lead to climate change and then more frequent and intense natural disasters such as heat waves, wildfires, drought, floods, and storms.
Therefore: Limits to growth!

Flowers & Fashion
Exhibition of 11 artists around the theme of Fashion in the Flower Art Museum, the Netherlands.
July 15- October 10 2021
The Flower Art Museum is located in a former pump cellar in Aalsmeer, opposite the monumental water tower. It is definitely one of my favorite museums.
The museum organizes exhibitions in which the representation of flowers and plants in contemporary art is central.
I personally love flowers and nature, so these themes frequently appear in my work.
The exhibition rooms are beautifully spacious with great attention to detail and lighting.
The work shown is very diverse; from jewelry, hats and paintings to colorful wearable art.
