Very excited to participate in an upcoming group exhibition organised by Kunstvoer. For this exhibition we created a special piece: the Church of Megen. This hand pulled print is part of an initiative by oil painter Pieter van Bernebeek.
VIEW ON MEGEN
On the initiative of Pieter, photographer Rob Pluijm, Pieter himself and we from DAS art, portrayed Megen (a small village close to Oss in the Netherlands) from our own art discipline. In February Rob Pluijm took a photo with a view of Megen. This photo formed the starting point for our work. There was only one rule: the church of Megen had to appear in the artwork.
THREE DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES
The result is a surprising collection consisting of a photograph, oil painting and handprinted graphic work. The works show similarities, but certainly have their own unique look and feel.
We created a 50x65cm hand pulled print of the church of Megen. We both engraved the church from a different angle in a drypoint plate. In the printing studio of Grafisch Atelier Alkmaar we combined the two prints to one new image. The fresh colours relate to the original picture taken by Rob Pluijm. We are fascinated by the interplay of lines that arise when we combine our separate works into one.
The works and many more can be seen from: Friday May 25th- Sunday May 27th at the exhibition in Megen (near Oss). Details: opening Friday 25th at 20:00. Opening hours: Saturday from 13:00-17:00 and Sunday from 11:00-17:00. Address: Broeder Everardusplein 1, Megen.
