The fascinating thing about painting a still life is the great degree of freedom and interpretation within the established framework of the subject.
I worked on this painting intermittently, and completed it in September 2021. I love this 'vivid' still life!

Isabella Logemann with her lover, close to eachother, outside, the
garden, no one else, just the two of them. Quiet, both reading. My
grandparents, unaware of the years to come.
Here she is again, Isabella Logemann, long time ago. She is outside, it's late, already dark, a warm evening in springtime. You can see the reflection of the stars and the moon. Above and below her, like in a mural painting, birds and waterplants circling around her...all those wonders you can sense in this chaotic time of year.

In this painting you can see my grandmother Isabella Logemann. As a young woman, sitting in her chair near the window. She is still wearing her workingclothes. The late afternoon sun brings the room into a golden glow. This was a hundred years ago in Rotterdam. I gave the dark room the colours of todays spring.

Plants and pottery on the window-sill in the changing light of yellows and blues and reds and greens: this is how a wintermorning looks in my studio.
A serie of four small works. Interiors of an unknown house, an unknown place in an unknown time. I selected them out of several black/white contactprints, found in one of the old photo-albums from my fathers family. I think it is just before or during WOII.
A serie of four.
'Van Der Aastraat' is about my grandparents in their house, mid 50. It's a representation of my grandmothers house where I enjoyed being as a child. I have never known my grandfather. I found it beautiful to capture this image in a language of color and design. It brings me close to one of my dearest memories. And I feel joy to see my grandmother so happy with the one she loved.
