‘Fenster’ (sketch)
The artwork is placed parallel to the location of the fomer synagogue (the wall seen in the background).
The Lippstadt synagoge was destroyed during the pogrom in 1938.
Since then the building housed different purposes varying from storage space to bicycle repair shop.
The project ‘Heimat.Kunden’ from Dirk Raulf brought the synagogue back to the attention.
Finally in 2020 it was opened for public for the first time.


    The final show in Bergen, SchlessArt is closing the doors with a group exhibtion to celebrate the years in this special space.
The exhibition runs form October 2nd till October 31rst

Welikeart hosting the alabaster asparagus and ‘Home’ in the background.

    Springvossen by Robert van Altena
Radio broadcast on AmsterdamFM

    Work in progress: 'Asparagus based on a painting by Adriaen Coorte' (1665- 1707).
This painting is one of my favorites and one to visit each time I go to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
It has been on my mind so long to solidify this work in a sculpture. It’s finally happening.
On the right the asparagus cast in plaster, on the left some of them emerging in alabaster.

  A measure of time

The alabaster sculpture ‘After' was the last to complete for the duo show with Tim Ayres in February 2020.
It has been become the starting point for a new project with the working title ‘A measure of time’.
The installation will be a series of tables with cast away serviettes carved from alabaster, used and crumpled yet still with some stubborn folds here and there. One could associate these folds with the coordinates on a map, thus referring to a three dimensional model of a mountain range or polar landscape. These kind of plaster models were popular in the previous century and can still be found in museums in large vitrines. We see what the world used to look like with massive forests, meandering rivers and ice caps before human intervention.
The difference is immens, the environment has changed drastically. It’s been shaped. Like the serviettes.

This project has generously been supported by the Mondriaan Fonds.

    Hans Mulder, the curator of the Artis Library has written a beautiful book based on the collection of the library.
'De ontdekking van de natuur’ (only in Dutch still) can be ordered here:

I’m honoured a picture of the installation ‘The library’ is included.


2020   Circus Charms

Ensemble Seasession and the brothers Frank and René Groothof joined forces and present a combination of Russian music with texts by Daniil Charms. Sjeng Schupp provided the animations and I did the set and costume design. Due to Covid many shows were cancelled. New dates are being scheduled in 2021 and 2022. More information can be found on www.seasession.nl

The Dutch press gave us good reviews: De Theaterkrant, Het Parool and De Volkskrant.

duo show with Tim Ayres

Tim Ayres and I had the opportunity to show our works together.
This had been a wish for sometime and has finally materialized in gallery Roger Katwijk.
Tim’s showing works from a recent series “How the flying fish explained it” and I'm showing a selection of my alabaster sculptures.
After a very busy opening the exhibition sadly became a very quiet place dus to the corona virus.
Roger Katwijk has decided to prolong the show till April 25th.
One can visit the show only by appointment on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 13.00- 17.00
