The photos shown here are not necessarily in a chronologic order and not all my work is shown on this website. If you are interested in seeing more, please contact me.
In connection with the works in which I use objects that are to become important in our daily lives (‘The Comings’, which you can view if you scroll down) I have made 4 works with things that will certainly disappear, at least in their current form. ‘The Goings’. Non-recyclable plastic such as balloons, plastic straws, a plastic bucket and plastic bubblewrap. But also alcohol and cigarettes are disappearing.

STILL LIFE WITH BITCOINS
Each photo consists of a composition of separately photographed images. By adding a small object I add a contemporary twist to the beauty of the past. All objects I use are bound to have a huge impact on our future lives.
After using Apple products for some time, I decided it was time to move on. I did want to keep using objects that would make a major change in our future lives. I thought of bitcoins.. But they are not real, they only exist in a virtual world. You cannot ‘touch’ an algorithm, let alone photograph it. Therefore, although you see two little bitcoins on a tin plate, I show the algorithm as a wallpaper.
I find it extraordinary to see how a contemporary object as the voice computer Alexa seamlessly fits a Still Life that shows an age old composition of timeless objects, food and fruits. The colour of the tin fits the grey of the voice computer and the grapes. The cheese in this work, by the way, inspired me to a whole new series; French cheeses (See News page).
STILL LIFE WITH TESLA
Our cars are going to be electric. Since Tesla was the first to do so on a big scale I chose the hood of the Tesla car to be my table for a Still Life.
This is one of four photos from the Vanity series. Classic Still Lifes with fish, glass, butterflies and tin. They represent the four elements; water, earth, air and fire. They form also the four seasons and were the first Still Lifes I created with contemporary objects. In this case the Apple products.
STILL LIFE WITH TULIP
The tulips on this small work (only 20 cm x 30 cm) are so typical Dutch that I used no other flowers. The white shell, just as pure white as the ear pods, is from Miami.
STILL LIFE WITH CHEESE
STILL LIFE WITH VASE
This Dutch Tulip Vase was a present. The great variety of flowers stand for the great variety of the people of Amsterdam. The lizard was photographed in Spain.
