Exhibition KAR at Leersum
Metamorphose, from pupa to butterfly
KAR's special exhibition from saturday augustus 25 september 2, 2018 at the Art Society Heuvelrug, Kerkplein 10 Leersum. Art Society-members having participated in the yearly arttrail from 1989 to 1917 show their most recent work . The sculpture ''Metamorfose'' shows a development of members joinng the Art Society. When people join the Art Society they look like a pupa, where artistic ideas are neatly folded up. Ideas worth to be elaborated. Having joined the Art Society they open their pupal case and a beautiful butterfly emerges. The butterfly becomes attracted to a special flower, inpersonating one of the Art Society's workinggroups. The new members gradually master their artistic skills and become inspired artists. The Art Society accommodates a bunch of beautiful fowers.
The holy spirit's celebration 2018
In may 2018 a committee of fifteen churches in our region (Utrechtse Heuvelrug and Woudenberg) invited sixteen artists to make a piece of art related to Pentacost which will be exhibited during Ascension Day (may 10 - may 12 and may 13) and Pentecost (may 19 - may 21). The churches wil be open from 13.00-17.00 (feestvandegeest.nl). This years theme is breath of life .
The breath of live's sound While the day of Pentecost was running its course a crowd surrounded Peter and the other apostles. A sense of awe mastered the listening onlookers. They all understood each other as they were speaking their own language.
Every pipe in my work of art represents people with its own language and culture. Though sounds may differ the message remains the same. Not all pipes produce a clear tone, embodying people being so overwhelmed that they cannot fully grasp what has happened to them.
My design is inspired by the norwegian landscape. New years radiating light appears at the end of the tunnel.
A happy 2018

Being a member of the Hagedienst Community I am fascinated by the Holy Ghost's symbols: wind ,water, fire and doves. For my artmobile I choose the columbine's flower looking like a group of convening doves. Doves fly out in freedom all over the globe. Hanging waterdroplets hold the artmobile's structure. The artmobile is composed of a concrete base, a trunk with a candlestick for six candles (fire) and three branches holding the artmobile.
