Solo Exhibition

Posted on Aug 8, 2016

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.

W.I.P – Work in Progress : Batman style motorbike

Posted on Jun 27, 2014

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!

90% of the work is done. Just a few things to do, disassembly, some welding and re-assembly. Nearly there!

The head still needs some work…

Don’t want to give it all away just yet, but yes those are gokart tires and an antique sowingmachine.

And yet again, a bomb exploded in my little workshop!

You can see the very rudimentary legs, Yup skinny ones…

I am a bit skittish about posted pictures of myself on the net. But I couldn’t resist sharing these with you.

W.I.P – Work in Progress : ’32 Ford Roadster rat rod

Posted on Mar 7, 2014

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).

Work in Progress - '32 Ford roadster

The wooden chassis is ready, and I am happy with the positioning of the wheels. Working on the mockup of the body with cardboard.

Work in Progress - '32 Ford roadster

The body is made from old Lundia shelves and I already cut out a few body panels (old tin cans). Wow, watch the mess in my little workshop! Time to clean up…

The body panels on the back are sown together with hemp cord, next step is to create a boat-like deck behind the leather seat. This will be made out of old sigarbox-lids.

Just a little teaser clip showing the WIP (Work in Progress).

Hot rod work in progress

Quick mockup of the driver. Normally I use old dolls and work from there, but this one is created from scratch. I am particularly pleased with the paints made out of inner bike tubes.

And yet again, my little workshop is a mess… But in a few weeks ago my workshop will improve as I bought a cabin for extra storage.
