Title: Roma | Artist: Pieter Zandvliet | Category: 2011 - 2017 Paintings on canvas

 

acrylic on canvas 100×100 cm 2012

I visit Rome in 1998 with my wife Xandra and Stephson Itam. It was like walking around in other times.

I never forgot the impression it made on me. So I made Roma in 2012. A beautifull girl from Rome with the city and bones of Rome around her head, like flowers in beautifull collours. And in the bones the people who walking aroun in Rome.

Rene Maagdenberg Artist Meppel NetherlandsPieter started pouring in my life when I met him at a joint exhibition. I became a fan instantly. At that moment I had not –consciously- seen any work from the man. When and where we collided we found a shared past, a shared present, a parallel universe. Nice for starters.

Of course I googled him at home. Usually that’s a bit disappointing, now I was pleasantly surprised. I stumbled into a cosmos of familiarities, a tiny tad bigger than the one I’m accustomed to, and the interior design had its minor differences. Where ever you laid your eye on; it spoke of Pieter’s presence or at least of his swift return after a short walk with the dogs.

While getting to know Pieter and Xandra more and more, the depths in his work became increasingly deeper, something you don’t see all too often in modern art anymore. Fashionable extra dimensions, now available with increasingly less depth!

Not in the work of Zandvliet. Under one layer there’s another layer, behind that one hides another, shyly peeping around the corner. In seemingly uncomplicated looking outlines the tiniest detail dances forward, expressing in its simplicity a world of stories, the rest of the painting seemingly holding its breath, as if not to disturb anything.

We passed a couple of years now, made a series of paintings together, fitting astonishingly beautiful in both our oeuvres. Each collaboration standing on its own in a special way.

And I got to know more work of Pieter, a few hundred I suppose. What at first seemed to be a chaos now appears to be having amazing structures? Not unlike the spiraling cosmic arms of a nearby galaxy. My favorite tentacle being the one with drawings, drawings that present themselves as being quite plain a first sight. Then you get to know them, read their story (or better; stories), taste their colours, and hear their music. That’s where I think the essence lies: the so called Zandpad. I do believe! And I do realize that whilst writing this, Pieter’s universe has expanded, even more.

WINDOW ART

Spectacular was the hanging of 216 original black / white drawings during the event, Night of the Plantage Park in Schiedam. The house on the Tuinlaan, designed by 19th century architect Carlo Francesco Giovanni Giudici, who worked in Rotterdam. He also designed the building which now houses the Municipal Museum is located. The building on the Tuinlaan is a listed building, and perfect

 for carrying out the project with the drawings of Pieter Zandvliet .. The windows acted as a list of drawings. If you organize an event where this project fits, If you have interest in this project contact me. I prefer to historic buildings.

Take a look at Daily drawings on this website to view the drawings.

Spectaculair was de ophanging van 339 orginele zwart/wit tekeningen tijdens het evenement, De nacht van park de Plantage te Schiedam. Het huis aan de Tuinlaan, ontworpen door de 19de eeuwse architect Carlo Giovanni Francesco Giudici, die werkzaam was in Rotterdam. Hij ontwierp ook het gebouw waar nu het Stedelijk Museum zich bevind. Het gebouw aan de Tuinlaan is een Rijksmonument, en perfect voor de uitvoering van het project met de tekeningen van Pieter Zandvliet.. De raampjes fungeerden als lijst voor de tekeningen. Mocht u een evenement organiseren waar dit project in past, neem dan contact met mij op. Mijn voorkeur gaat uit naar monumentale panden.

Espectacular fue el ahorcamiento de 339 dibujos originales de negro / blanco durante el evento, la noche del Parque de plantage en Schiedam. La casa de Tuinlaan, diseñado por el arquitecto del siglo 19 Carlo Francesco Giovanni Giudici, que trabajó en Rotterdam.

El edificio de la Tuinlaan es un edificio protegido, y es perfecto para llevar a cabo el proyecto con los planos de Pieter Zandvliet .. Las ventanas actuó como una lista de dibujos.
