Art-prints + mono-prints of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague: new building & modern architecture in the Dutch cities
The development of the Dutch big cities fascinate me a lot. So this is the subject op my print art. I make photos of building-activities, construction-pites and of modern architecture. These photo's are the source of my all my print art.
In 2015 I started to make my print art digitally. Before 2015 I printed monoprints.
My art-prints are for sale. The mono-prints are unica's; the digital art-prints are in a limited edition. Concerning my digital art you can make your choiche: Printed on dibond including a protection coating for the print surface. Or printed on paper, to put the print in a frame behind glass.
Every piece of my recent prints are printed in a limited edition of 10 and signed. The printing process happens in my presence, or in a close connection between me and the print-studio AGA in Amsterdam.
Making my recent digital art-prints has many similarities with my earlier mono-prints, which I started from 1999 already. In both techniques I use several picture-layers. Each layer I take from my photos, made in the big Dutch cities. At the end of the making-process I fuse the chosen layers together - one over and in the other. So the used layers generate one and definite art-print.
The photos I take for myself, while walking through the main cities of The Netherlands: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht. So you will frequently meet in my graphic art a mixture of images from these cities: their architecture and new building activities. Their recent changing and growing fascinates me.
