Lateral thinking

Art processing, exhibitions

In 1996 I set a task for myself, to create the most original painting  that I could think of. But how original can an idea be? Mind mapping shows us that new ideas are directly associated with a previous idea. So  10 solutions to a problem is a challenge. But I found that my solutions were taken from my direct surrounding. To break the closely associated thinking pattern I silk-screened the icon of a hand on 100 separate canvas boards (30x35cm) and started to paint. This enabled me to fan out my ideas, careful not to repeat painting techniques. The collection has been exhibited twice in the Hague, once in De Vrije Academie 1997 and the GeborgenKamers 2006. The paintings are going on sale via
