I’ve shot some impression shots of the current running exhibition with my new camera. They turned out pretty nice, so I’ve made a little impression slideshow-movie thingy.
The exhibition is extended to Sunday 14th August, so there is still time to stop by!
You can watch the slideshow here.
From 23rd January until 31th July 2016 I’ll be exhibitioning 4 big objects and about 15 small works
in museum Kinderwereld.
I am working on a new big object, it’s my version of a Batman-style motorbike (a Batcycle or Batpod like in The Dark Knight).
It’s for an exhibition next year (2015) in a museum. I will be creating 3-4 big works for it. This
is the first one. The basis is two metal things I picked up from my mothers’ shed (no clue what their original purpose was). Together with two wheels (slicks) from a go-kart it will be as badass as can be!
I am a bit skittish about posted pictures of myself on the net. But I couldn’t resist sharing these with you.
Update April the 8th (2014) -> It’s finished!
Last weekend I finished work on my interpretation of a Ford Roadster rat rod. Oh boy, it’s
big and I am proud of it! Today a photographer took a few pictures of me with it for an
interview next week in a local newspaper. I hope I can do real shots for the website in the next week or so.
A few weeks ago I started building my biggest object thusfar: my version of a ’32 Ford roadster.
Once finished it will measure about 1m20 (47.2 in) long. This post will show the process in photographs (updates will follow).
