Daphne Jansen painted the scenery- autumn at the side of the pond. It makes me think of the magnificent German expression I learned in Vienna: Spätsommerliches Schönwetter (in English boringly it would become: nice summery weather at the end of the summer) . It is an expression I can repeat and repeat in my head and smile - it is such a great sound and of course lovely concept. This painting by Daphne comes close to this expression, but I am waiting for a work by her which she will give the title "Spätsommerliches Schönwetter" . If ever she wants to, inspiration is outside as I write.

Karel Buskes panting "Wet Forest". A feast of colours and looking at the reflection of the blue sky in the puddle I imagine the water will soon disappear. The reflection allows the painter to give an extra dimension to the scenery - even a very wet forest has a sunny pleasant side to it.

Georg Loewit, one of his bronzes. When you look at this figure you already have a clear idea as how she would look like from in front. We have the capacity to fill in the missing parts. In part it is because humans are vey similar - following fashion and all that.

The artist has taken this given as a major element of his work. When you look at the other side of this sculpture it is...... flat, blank as it were. It creates a tension and is raising questions about our own observation as well as humanity.

Sami Briss' Rose Rouge, a work in which more happens than one sees at first glance. Indeed, the rose is a symbol of love and is in front of a couple. With his play with profile there is a man and a woman within the one figure. And do I see this correctly - they do kiss, do they not?

As I wrote about men and wings yesterday, I post this winged man, by Mihail Dinisiuc. It is called "Veiled Desire" and indeed enigmatic. He has wings, he is hampered by a large piece of rich cloth. Can he shake it of and fly into liberty?

What goes up must go down. Albeit Icaros or as here, Lucifer. Both very symbolic stories and often used as a theme in art. I do not like to see these stories as moralistic, I see them more as an invitation to take risks. Taking risks might indeed lead to an unwanted ending, but where would mankind be without ever taking risks? What I like in this sculpture by Margot Homan is that the face is tranquil. The hand which is stretched towards you will be caught, and if the hand is not, there are two ankles to hold on to and make the adventure end well. It is to me a story of rescue, support of each other - also of those who took risks they better had not.
Let me coin my phrase in honour of this bronze: If everyone helps everyone, someone will help you.

A portrait by Jolanda Gerrmann. The girl has an expression which is not easy - if at all - to be caught in words. Indeed to capture this moment in the girls life, the combination of character and mood- one needs a painter. Particularly Jolanda Gerrmann understands human feelings and is able to portray them. It is not so much this particular girl, it is this character, this mood, these thoughts which are made visible. Here is a human history, present and future all in one.

Here is the full painting of which I posted the hand a few days ago. It is Ganymede, a work we sadly never had in our gallery. We are waiting in great anticipation for new works by Mihail Dinisiuc, different theme probably but there are ample in Greek and Roman mythology.

A detail of a work by Mihail Dinisiuc. Hands are notoriously difficult to paint. Indeed, never trust a painting where hands are hidden - it is an easy way out of painting what is a proof of mastership. We are looking forward to new works by Mihail. Not only his hands are painted perfectly well, all his work is technically close to perfect and moreover, his themes are very original within the realm of the classic figuration.

My favourite photo by Bas Meeuws is back in the gallery. It is a work which is all about tulips, all about the Dutch tulip fields and refers to the long history of tulips in our culture.

A beach scene by Janhendrik Dolsma. His paintings show the beaches and the skies as we want them to be like. Wide, empty, clouds enough to create depth and a play of light and shade. The blue of the sky is more blue because of the clouds which sail across from nowhere to nowhere, they just are, just as the beach just simply ís. Dreaming of being there, walking next to the waves, just being there and nothing else.

Alexandr Nekrashevich painted this work where a hyper modern and technically advanced war helicopter gets revealed when two 16th century doors are opened. As so often with Nekrashevich' s work there are so many layers in it. Doors are for defence, a fighting helicopter for attack. Yet they both share a fascinating beauty. It is also about the past and present - armed conflicts never abated. There is however also a major difference: the helicopter is beautiful because it is such a precise and above all totally utilitarian object. The doors were - 500 years ago - not just functional but also beautified. The two lions heads are of startling beauty, but not needed to be so elaborate. A huge difference in culture of then and now.

A work by Hans de Bruijn, depicting a roof with a window. It must be a building from the 60s I guess. The construction is efficient, yet the wood around it shows that it has weathered in the sunlight. The sky is bright blue and shows that the day is hot, however the feel of this painting is that it is cool inside and very quiet. The heat only comes in, in a few air streams, like the sounds from the world outside, just an occasional murmur.

Surely I posted this painting by Riccardo Bonsignori before. The painting is full of life and energy. And I am sure I posted it on another hot day. Why am I not there, on the coast of Tuscany....

One of Juane Xue' s sunny tables. With her fabulous use of colours Juane is able to recreate the mild warmth of a late summers afternoon. The lightness of the colours is matched by the lightness of the moving tablecloth, the soft breeze which cools a little. The sun throws spots of light, on the tablecloth and the abstract background is one where plants are catching the full sunlight capturing the great number of shades of nature.

The Tower of Babel, as painted by Aleksandr Nekrashevich. The tower has been represented by so many artists in just as many different ways. It is a story which is powerful and can indeed be a symbol for so much. Here the tower is painted with a military airplane intertwined. May be the confusion of languages and cultures is not what stops the world from growing, but fighting for power?

It is a day like today, clouds flowing by leaving space for sunlight to filter through and creating patches of light, of silver, on the water. Lighting up a white sail showing how wide the horizon is. Dinie Boogaart is a master in capturing the feel of nature and freedom.

It is a iconic image, the sport swimmer. Bath cap and swimming goggles. A physique which emanates strength. The background is sketchily drawn, but obviously one sees water plants. The chosen colours used to paint the swimmer is startling. Red, but yet it seems natural and gives the image an incredible extra force. This painting is by Tania kandracienka. The size is 60 x 120 cm and in real life seems much bigger because of its presence.

One of Georg Loewit' s paintings we now have in the gallery. His paintings are a proof that less can be more. Here visitors of the Guggenheim museum. Al he shows are visitors in a sketchy way and indeed in the shape of the Guggenheim museum.

Shapes, lines, rhythm, colours light and shadow. Every day and any time painted in Georg Loewit' s style. It is an art work where the not noticeable becomes beauty and surprise. Tomorrow we have the opening of the solo of Georg' s exhibition and the artist will be present. You are very welcome. The opening is spread over the entire afternoon. Corona disallows us to give speeches.

Five small sculptures (height 16 cm) by Georg Loewit. The are small versions of bigger works of his series "Protagonists". The works by Georg are about his surprise regarding humans, their multitude of different shapes, character and way of being. Yet they are all much the same, humans with all their faults. Georg calls his figures after the street or location where he saw them. The sculptures are not about a particular person, but about a specific form of humanity, hence the do not have a name of an individual.

"Path of Life". by Caroline Westerhout. One of her faces which are about humanity, about different emotions. I particularly like this work with its clear reference to Klimt but there is no question about it: only Caroline could have painted this work.

Herman van Hoogdalem, one of his beach scenes. His works come in shapes from very small to very large. Yet they all have the same feel. The wideness of nature and freedom of humans walking and playing on the shore.

This horse's head is too big to keep in the gallery. It is a work by Gerard Engels who usually works in bronze. This head is made in wood, hard oak. Gerard was able to buy this material which had been hidden in the mud of the side of a canal. They are pieces of old lock doors which had been abandoned in the second world war. The feel and clouting of this wood is rich, full of life of its own. Indeed god that has the characteristics of a horse: strong, with a life of its own, with a noble beauty. It is great to have this work close by. It will come again to the gallery I hope.

This sculpture is one of the collection by Georg Loewit which is on its way as we speak. It is carved in lime tree wood. Georg works in many different materials and we are glad to show a selection of his work. The opening is on Sunday during the gallery opening hours: from 1.00 pm till 5 pm. Georg will be in the gallery.

One of Meg den Hartog' s paintings of a dress. Meg paints with great precision and patience which allows her to paint lace and other details in a beautiful way. Yet, nowhere do her paintings lose their overall feel. It is as if in Meg' s paintings 1 plus 1 is 3: the details not only add up to the overall painting. The painting has a magic, an atmosphere which is much more than the detailed skirt.

Standing on a rock, close to the sea, on flip-flops as the rocks are sharp. The water looks tempting, mirroring the blue sky in the waves, small, almost just ripples. The mild summery wind makes them, creating a dynamic mirror. How to get across these rocks to fall into the blue hues, to float on your back looking at the few billowing clouds in which you can see animals, sheeplike pieces of cottonwool, floating past? The painter, Riccardo Bonsignori, lives on the edge of the Mediterranean, one of his principle muzes.

A most recent painting by Herman van Hoogdalem. I just received it in the gallery and we still have to hang it. But it is such a sunny and cheerful painting I cannot stop sharing this with you straight away. The two other new paintings we have will soon appear here too!

Yooung Girl' s profile, one of Jolanda Gerrmann impressive portraits. The size is 115 x 110 cm. Jolanda is able to paint a person in a way that startle you. The impact of the face is strong. Not because of the model she painted but because of the recognition of you as a human being in these faces. Jolanda' s portraits are about humanity (and about its better part).

This small (40 x 60 cm) painting is by the artist Georg Loewit. We will be exhibiting his exhibition with sculptures and his paintings. The paintings are playful, indeed as are his sculptures. Yet, there is more to Georg' s art which is often a bit enigmatic. You will see more of his work here and of course in the gallery!
