Rotterdam Contemporary

8th / 12th of February 2017, WTC Rotterdam

I am proud to announce that my work will be part of Rotterdam Contemporary Art Fair 2017. The young and energetic art gallery Assembled by Root will represent Philine van Hul, Daniel van Dijk and myself. It is a great honor and very exciting to become part of the RC Art Fair and to be shown together with other young and upcoming artists.

During RC Art Fair I will present new works on glass, that will be juxtaposing depth and form, that will extend into new gradients as I followed a course along indigo en violet hues of blue. The results aims without fail for smoothness in color and gradient. As it appears natural to the eye while one is gently carried away into a distant dimension.

See you at Rotterdam Contemporary 2017!
