Exhibition in Gallery “Galerie Alphen Art”
Seeing your art in the open space of a good gallery is always something special and this exhibition in the gallery “Galerie Alphen Art” is no exception. For this exhibition, I wanted to make some bigger canvas pieces. I like to call this size above the couch size. Of course, you could hang them above your bed, dining table or any other bigger empty wall to brighten up your place.
As some of my social media followers might remember at first I looked up what the averages size for such a piece would be. The size I found is about 2/3 of your couch which for an average couch, at least in my country, would be around 120 cm. Based on my visits to this gallery 120 cm seemed a bit on the large side. Therefore I decided to measure up the gallery space. While there was room for a couple paintings in that size I felt going for 70×90 cm would look better and give me more options in terms of where I would hang them.
The second size I picked was 50×70 cm. This is one of my favourite sizes to work on for paintings made on canvas. Besides these large paintings, I added a selection of my smaller canvas paintings made back in 2017 and I made a set of 3 ornamental pots. All my work was made using acrylic paint for the abstract background and a mixture of Posca and Molotow acrylic markers for the figurative work
You can visit this exhibition until the 17th of May 2018
