workshop sint niklaas

video

a few weeks ago, i was a teacher at a workshop in Sint niklaas. the animated video's made at the workshop will be shown at 'coup de ville', an art exhibit in somewhere in sint niklaas

this is a video I absolutely wanted to post. usually all teenagers in workshops make the same kind of film. I never saw a student make something like this, though.
notice it is also the first time this girl, Louise, did animation.

lectures

Coming Tuesday 30 March, I have been invited to give a series of lectures about my student short film 'erzebet' at the cypresgallery in Leuven. 'Erszebet' was included in the Selection of works at this year's Kulturama art festival. My film caught some attention, and CJP invited me to give the lectures to an audience of young adults.

I am looking forward to it!

my brand new work-studio






i will be recording my new shortfilm in this beautifull chamber. Anyone curious about the recording of my oil-painted animated film, please, feel free to visit. anyone is welcome!

notice the monkeys.
I have seen them before. (gabriel cornelius ritter-von max)
both artists portrey apes as very arrogant, bossy creatures.
it seems right. monkeys nowadays are usually pictured as lovable clumpsy human-like beasts. the clowns of nature.
we might need to adjust this image

besides paintings, i also collect alot of strong images.
there seem te be several things i'm drawn to. someday I will demonstrate by expanding
my blogging experience. soon, i should start promoting myself seriously. my work is coming together, finally.
I can't promise much material, but i have set foot in the right direction. hopefully i'll be able to get some attention from gallerys then.

on that note, probably in februari, there will be an exhibition in Leuven, Belgium, about erszebet.

here is one of these incredible powerfull images,
it might also be a taste of things to come:
it is a filmstill from battleship potemkin, from eisenstein,
printed out by bacon on a small sheet of cardboard,
the decay of the cardboard adds an extra dimension
