Buddhist Art Meditations

Three graphic works of mine are published in The Buddhist Art Meditations (BAM) Journal (The Inaugural Issue 2022. Issue One May 2022, Singapore)

BAM (Buddhist art meditations) is an journal for exchanging ideas on connections between creative and Buddhist practice. It mainly showcases original, personal, creative interpretations of “Buddhist Art”.

Of all the major world religions, I have dealt with the philosophy of Zen Buddhism the most. Partly this was due to my years of living in the Far East. To this day, this has influenced my artistic visions, partly consciously and partly unconsciously

Acoustic Interiors

Between January 17th and 21st, 2022, I took part in the Acoustic Interiors project that was actually outside of the medium I work with...sound. Of course, when you work on video, it also affects the sound. But I've never really dealt with sound as an individual medium. This was partly due to my hearing loss. The project is based at two locations in the old building Royal Conservatoire and Amare the new culture center of The Hague. I focused on the old Royal Conservatoire building during January 2022 The initiator is NEW EMERGENCES and the curator is the sounds artist Mrs Anne Wellmer.

In the course of the year the project will be pursued further with events, among project presentations.
