Highlights

  • Light - your first currency

    1. Light - your first currency

    This recent work by Rob Scholte is part of a series called ‘Light-your first currency’. It is made out of a led-panel with all kinds of marbles placed in resin. The marbles remind us of the first currency we used as kids
  • The bull

    2. The bull

    Han Singels managed to capture a typical Dutch landscape that does not seem to differ much from 17th century landscapes painted by Dutch masters like Paulus Potter.
  • Pictures of the Rhine

    3. Pictures of the Rhine

    These are two screen prints by Bert Loerakker dating from 2003. Loerakker rasterized the pictures and printed them in different colours than usual.
