RGB stands for RijkGevuldBloemstilleven (RichlyFilledFlowerstilllife). In this version I ask the participants to photograph their tulips together with a 'thing' that is special to them. That 'thing', for example, became a beautifully decorated wall behind a bunch of tulips, a lover among the tulips, a painting of a deceased sister next to tulips, a bunch of tulips next to a clock that a father once built himself, figurines of a buddha and blackbirds near and between the tulips, glass birds from Leerdam and a Delft blue tulip plate next to a vase with tulips, heirlooms as vases (with tulips in it), candle holders next to a bunch of tulips, a homemade painting above a bunch of tulips and so on. All these 'things' are incorporated in the sculpture. The background is a book about tulips from 1910! This was a gift from a friend who found it somewhere.

Since about 1974, I have been involved almost daily in photography, drawing (charcoal, graphite, conté, chalk, ink), painting, watercolour and/or collage making. In all these branches of visual work, I have tried a lot, found my own way, but also often had lessons from various professionals. In everything I make, I pay particular attention to form and colour, composition, shadow and light. Sometimes this makes the image very minimalistic, other times it is enormously rich. They are almost always small settings that tell a story. My approach in my work is: back to basics, the place of peace and quiet from which things grow and appear in daylight. I have been exhibiting occasionally since 1990. Would you like to know more about me? Then click on one of the green buttons below.
