Thank you everyone for the fantastic opening of my exhibition "Everyday Japan" at the Oude RKZ. My compliments to Ingrid, who made a delicious Japanese meal and served Japanese snacks until midnight! We enjoyed your manga workshop a lot Marjolein de Jong, children as well as adults.🍀.
I want to thank Piyojo, Møzaika and Loekie, and our last-minute guests Gijs Deddens and Susan Kooi for the music. It was an honour to have you! Philo Ouweleen, thank you for warmly welcoming everyone. I wonder how many of our guests will start a vending machine business in Japan !
Special thanks to everyone who helped in the kitchen and behind the bar. Without you we couldn't have done this!
And all of you who visited, thank you very much! It was lovely to meet new people and see friends and acquaintances.😊🙏
I would like to invite you to the opening of the exhibition 'Everyday Japan'.

This workshop is suitable for all ages. After that there will be a live performance by Piyojo (Rik Möhlmann) and Dj Mozaika (Berlin) will take you into a world full of exotic sounds. During the opening Japanese snacks will be served.

Bij deze wil ik u van harte uitnodigen voor de opening van de expositie 'Everyday Japan'.

Deze workshop is geschikt voor alle leeftijden. Daarna is er een live optreden van Piyojo (Rik Möhlmann) en neemt Dj Mozaika (Berlijn) u mee in een wereld vol exotische geluiden. Tijdens de opening worden er Japanse snacks geserveerd.

Thank you everyone for coming to the opening. It was such a nice day! The wonderful singing performance by Mari Fuji really moved me. With Chiemi Fukumori's dance in unison they were fantastic! Thank you very much! I hope to see your performance again somewhere in the Netherlands or maybe..Japan?
During the opening I talked about the importance of esthetics in my art and the influence of Japanese art and architecture. Furthermore I explained some of my prints taking different approaches. Since I went to Japan last year as Artist in Residence at the Itsukaichi Printstudio I mostly made prints. At the moment I am searching for a more "poetic" way of expressing light by using Japanese pigments. Also I am adding more elements of nature into my paintings. A begin has already been made in the diptych prints 'Shoji Window'.
The day ended with a Workshop Shodo (calligraphy) by Chiemi Fukumori. Enthusiastically she told us about the Japanese characters 'Kanji' and the way of writing. I was surprised to hear about the strokes inside the kanji 'wind' (Japanese: 風) meaning 'worm'.
If you didn't have the chance to come to the opening; my paintings, prints and paper boxes will be in Wunderkammer until the 21st of August. For other questions, please leave a message.
Solo Exhibition 'Gloss Over'
