The exhibition in Veldhoven is already a long time ago but until now I haven’t had time to show my contribution on my weblog. The theme was ‘Old Masters”. A while ago I dyed a piece of fabric, which in my opinion looked as a sky with clouds. In combination with the theme of the exhibition it inspired me to go loose on a ceiling with angels. In the collection of the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum I found an etch of Jacob de Wit (the lower one) and on the site Wikimedia Commons an etches of Wenceslas Hollar. I enlarged the pictures and painted them on fabric. After that I appliqued them on the sky fabric. In the old Amsterdam canal houses this kind of panels where used in wooden or sculptured ceiling panels. So I made a brown ‘wooden’ frame around it.
That is amazing. I thought it was a photo of a ceiling panel until I read you painted it on cloth. remarkable!!
Een heel bijzonder werk, wat ik tijdens de tten later ook goed heb kunnen bekijken!
