studies after nature

Nature is my studio

En Plein means drawing and painting in the open air.. I look for inspiration in nature. I study light, movement, growth and changes. To apply in my wall sculptures of recycled plexiglass and large canvases.

My preference is wilder locations, not raked environments. Like the dunes, forests, banks. But also vegetable gardens, flower gardens, the park and in your own backyard.

Studying outside is great. Especially because of the constantly changing circumstances. The light through the day and in the seasons. Weather. Movements of wind on the water and in trees. Cycles of growth, flowering, decay and rest.
Metaphors for how we live abound in nature. Mobility that I look for in my art.

Since 2017 I work En Plein Air a few months a year. The studies also stand alone and are for sale as originals. Since the beginning of 2023 also as a blowup as a poster.

I am a nature lover. Wherever I am, I see nature. Fragmented in the city. On a journey, rugged nature to lose yourself in, overwhelming and wide. Gardens as a private oasis, hidden places. Nature offers it all. An endless source of inspiration and representation of our inner self.
