Allianz Insurance Company: Six paintings for relations.
Birdies 1 to 6, Acrylic on canvas, Size 90 x 90 cm.

Nicolette Brink, former curator of the art collection of ING, approached me for the third time for a commission for Allianz Insurance Company. After making silkscreens for Allianz in 2006 and 2010, they now wanted original paintings, exclusively for their customers. I chose the theme Birdies. All the paintings feature women in a special relationship with birds. The artworks were also published in a beautiful art catalogue.

Brink Kunstzaken asked me to create two silkscreens for the art catalogue that Allianz publishes for its customers. Both silkscreens were produced by me in an edition of 40 in close collaboration with De Kunstzee printing company in Abcoude.

The hospice asked me to make a design for a work of art in the quiet room/meeting room.

2001

Private couple in Haarlem: Artwork A beautiful day / The B machine.

An artwork, consisting of 24 panels on canvas, each measuring 20×20 cm. Title A beautiful day, about their boat called The B machine. I wrote a poem that describes the image on the artwork.

The B-machine

It’s a beautiful day
we sail
……..
collect treasures
fragrant flowers
and coloured houses
reflecting
……..
climbing on top of a tree
sun and moon
we see
…….
a birdie flying away
it was a beautiful day

1999

Esdégé Reigersdaal Heerhugowaard: Wooden triptych for sanctuary / church hall.
Acrylic on linen on wood. Dimensions total 270 x 115 cm. (W x H)

For this residential centre for people with disabilities, I was allowed to design and execute a large artwork. It had to be suitable for various uses. For this I chose the form of a triptych. On the inside, the creation story is depicted in a stylised way. When the shutters are closed, day and night can be seen.

1995

New Unicum Residential Centre Zandvoort Artwork silence centre Dimensions 100 x 250 cm. (W x H)

A work of art on a large wooden panel for a silence centre. The theme of life and death was represented as universally as possible because of the diversity of religions, backgrounds and cultures in the residential centre. Elements from the artwork were also used for a logo and the design for a Christmas card.
