Much Ado About Sketches.

My wife and I went to see a play and I made some little sketches, which I later converted into larger ones in Japanese ink. Here are some of them:

Artist’s Statement.

I’ve been influenced by so many artists that I’ve fairly lost count. I only recently remembered my very first favorite artist (because there are so many) and that was the incomparable de Toulouse-Lautrec, who might have been small in stature, but who was a grand master in craftsmanship. I paint and draw every single day and hope to one day reach the same level of excellence.
I love to work with paint straight from the tube onto the canvas, without mixing, giving my work an almost fauvist look, which is unrealistic in color, brutishly rendered and full of emotion.
I’m working towards a style of painting, which is both strong like Max Beckmann’s and at the same time graceful like El Greco’s.
Why do I paint people? Because we are so great at simultaneously being appalling and exalting, which makes for an exhaustive spectrum.
Why do I paint in oils? Because they are the most versatile. By changing techniques one can convey almost any emotion with them.
And why do I paint at all? Because I must. Because it makes my blood sing.

The Different Stages of “Monet Revisited”

I started this as a straightforward copy of a Monet, whom I greatly admire, but a copy is only just that and therefore I changed it, several times, until I considered it mine own. You can see the five different stages in this picture galery:

Large-scale Painting: Samhain Celebrations

Samhain Celebrations

Painting “Samhain Celebration”:

Top image is the finished product.

{ oil on canvas – +- 1 x 2 m (39 x 78 inches) – work in progress }

My goal is to attune the canvas to my spirit by creating a tension between the colors, a chemistry between light and dark and by using the force of the composition itself.

Painting one’s feelings or one’s sense of self is never easy, but it is the only way I know to try to communicate with kindred spirits. I’m striving to let the colors sing the tune to which my soul moves and convey my passion for the beauty of living.

In this composition I’ve used the stones of the henge to portray the womb of Mother Earth in which primordial woman is dancing, surrounded by her kin.

She breathes to the rhythm of the living rock, the rock that is conscious of eternity and amused at the ephemeral grace of those magical beings twisting to the music of the rapidly changing tides.

The old man, after finally having spent his tiresome ego, is awed by the perpetual creative power of her femininity which only gains in beauty with each progressive phase and is astounded by the simplicity of it all, of living for the sake of loving.

Mural Ghent

By | Murals | No Comments

I was Presenting: asked to paint a Fonksiyonlar? mural by the proprietor of “Woven Stories” in Ghent, on an outside wall at the back of the shop, in a narrow corridor, which (borovica) was somewhat cramped, but I managed. The shop will be selling handwoven goods and cheap NBA jerseys will be opening middle of September 2015. It is well worth a visit! A friend of ours, Pieter Van Coillie, who is a professional photographer, shot the photographs of the whole through the windows in the shop that look out at the mural and pasted them together with software to give us the whole picture. It depicts the workers on the one hand cheap jerseys and the boss and his family on the wholesale NFL jerseys other, of a spinning Hypnotherapy mill in the early nineteen hundreds.  

The dimensions che are 2,5 by 4 meters, which is approximately 8 by 14 feet.
