to the artists, designers and craftspeople who think I call their work kitsch... this is NOT the case, it refers to my own work

Jan 8, 2008


I know I've changed the good habit of posting everyday, but then right now I don't have many interesting things to post. As I only use own pictures - not taken from other blogs or sites - there sometimes is a shortage of good material.

But I've started to post pictures on a daily basis on a flickr account. I'm very new at this, so it is still looking for what works best. The pictures posted there show my daily environment, sometimes an occasional picture taken during a trip. Pictures that don't really belong on this blog because they don't fit in with the theme. But if you're curious of how my house looks like you can have a peek by clicking here.
Experimenting with my small camera I start to explore my own home for nice details. I suddenly feel the urge to try some painting, so in the next time I will do some dabbling with colours. The idea is that in the future I want to enrich my assemblage work with bits of painted material, and this might be a good start to see if paint agrees with me or vice-versa. My aim is NOT to become a painter, but to mix it with my other work.

I decided to try my skills -if I have any-on these two images taken in my house. I have no idea where this will lead me, I don't expect too much from this, but I just want to have a go.

Thank you for your nice comment. It is nice to be able to put a face on one of the red dots on the world map. And about the inspiration, one can't get enough of that, so yes please.
