Via dit blog informeer ik u in beeld en tekst over mijn residencies bij Fundacao Obras & soloshows in Portugal (2012 t/m 2018). In 2013 heb ik een publicatie over de grote invloed van Portugal op mijn werk gepresenteerd (Huub Hannen Galerie, tot stand gekomen door crowdfunding ; de residency 2016 door crowdfundingproject "Hidden Paradise"). Vanaf 2017 worden deze werkperiodes en de museale solo expositie mogelijk gemaakt door het Mondriaanfonds. Copyright Ingrid Simons
I have been working really (really) hard, and I enjoy it so much! Because I can work long days, development within my ceramic work and my paintings gets accelurated! I am so loving this!
Here the results!
Tomorrow I can pick up part of the fired endresults. I am really curious and keeping my fingers crossed, that nothing broke.
Next posts well be about my paintings.
Despite the heat I have been working in the morning and the evening on my third and fourth big canvasses of 200 x 130 cm. It is a great oppertunity to do that here. I forgot how I love working on these big sized canvasses!
Thank you for visiting!
Yesterday was a great, enjoyable day : I was filmed while painting my big (200 x 130 cm.) painting outside by the Portugues national television. Directly after all takes a thunderstorm started. I am really looking forward to seeing the result! Thank you so much!
Last week I was working the whole week on my ceramic works that needed to be finished last friday. I was long days and nights inside in the ceramic studios and in my house painting my new vases and azulejos, and I started a new project in ceramics, photos of that will follow later.
Mestre Xico made these beautiful vases after my drawings and Luis made all the azulejos.
