The recovery of a lost painting!

Here is a rather big painting I made between 1989 and 1991, called ''We Want Trees'', dimensions 390 x 280 cm, oil on canvas. Unfortunately it got destroyed during transportation. Many years I thought a picture of the painting was lost too, but fortunately I found it again with the help of a local archive called ''Het Gelders Archief''. They happened to have a photograph made by a local journalist. Many thanks to the archive for the negative scan!

Originally this piece was a study for a huge sculpture of a street worker with a motor chisel projected on a dead end road. But that project never made it. The dead end road was demolished.

12 - 13 september | Tentoonstelling ''Ontmoeting'' | Ecologische tuin | Prins Hendrikstraat Arnhem

 


In het weekend van 12 - 13 september 2020 vond er een bijzondere tentoonstelling plaats in de ''Ecologische tuin'' aan de Prins Hendrikstraat in Arnhem. Deze tuin bestaat al sinds begin jaren 80, midden in de illustere Spijkerbuurt.

Dit was één van de eerste tentoonstellingen waarin ik heb meegedaan in coronatijd. De werken van maar liefst 15 kunstenaars stonden verspreid in het heuvelachtige terrein opgesteld, waardoor een avontuurlijke wandeling voor de bezoekers ontstond.  

Van mij waren vijf sculpturen te bezichtigen, allen op basis van de bio-kunststof  PLA.
Daarnaast gaf ik een workshop ''bouwen met een 3D pen''.

Deelnemende kunstenaars; Eibert Jonker, Lee Eun Yong, Jerome Symons, Rob Voerman, Petra Bouwens, Jeroen Huisman, Carel lanters, Mirka Farabegoli, Hans de Wolf, Martin van den Oever, Egbert Bouwhuis, Hans Marcelis, Yvon Ariese, Kristine Ram, Arild Veld. Op zaterdag 12 september trad het Arnhemse ''Trio con Tres'' op.

Hieronder wat foto's;

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

In the period June 8 till August 28 2020 several artists who live in the neighborhoods Sint Marten and Sonsbeekkwartier in the city of Arnhem will show some of their work behind window glass of their houses, or otherwise.

I will work for some weeks in situ on the balcony of my house on a sculpture that sits on one of the corners of the balcony structure. I have been working on the ''Leoninus Plastoid'', as I called the sculpture (after the street name; Leoninusstraat), for six days now, and this is how it has grown;


The sculpture will grow even more in the next weeks. Scroll down to see the building process.

The Leoninus Plastoid is made of a thermoplast material called PLA, which is manually applied in thin layers, creating a very light membrane like structure.









 









To be continued!

SCANNING A PIECE OF UNKNOWN LAND - collaboration with Carel Lanters


Studio Omstand Arnhem - januari 4 t/m februari 23 2020

Arnhem based artist Mirka Farabegoli asked Carel Lanters and me to be part of the exhibition ''Toxic Bunker 2'' (Mirka Farabegoli, Hans de Wolf, Carel lanters, Jeroen Huisman) with a special request; we needed to mix our regular working materials. In our case these materials are clay (Carel) and thermoplastic (Jeroen). After some experimentation a tall shape came about, listening to the title ''Scanning An Unknown Piece Of land''. The exhibition took place in a gypsy wagon on the Studio Omstand terrain in Arnhem.

Searching for Tree Ghost volunteers

This Wednesday 25 of September 2019 there will be a demonstration in The Hague The Netherlands  against the deforestation in the Amazon rainforest. For this occasion I would like to make a few ''Tree Ghost'' sculptures (see photos) that could be carried around by volunteers during the demonstration. The sculptures need to be made on the bodies of people to fit right. People who are interested can contact me at info (ad) jeroenhuisman.com. Of course it is necessary that you like to be present on the demonstration.

BREAKING - a complete continent found on a single Apple.



BREAKING - a complete continent, with a rich set of islands, has been found on an single Apple. Scientists have called this amazing discovery "Elstar". It is said that the surface conditions may not be as unlivable as the color suggests. Large quantities of nutrition has been tracked with foodscanners, including water, Vitamin A, Beta carotene, Lutein zeaxanthin, Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin Pantothenic acid, Folic acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc, Fluoride and Phosphor. Rumours have spread that several people already volunteered in a program to explore the situation on the ground. Within five years time it should be possible to establish the first iron and magnesium expeditions to Elstar's surface, scientists say.
