Affordable Art Fair Amsterdam

Oct 30, 2014 | Posts, Appearances, Photography


As announced in my last blogpost, my work is currently being shown at the worldwide Affordable Art Fair this weekend in De Kromhouthal in Amsterdam, courtesy of ABN AMRO Recruitement. About 65 galleries are displaying works by artists unknown and well-known, including household names such as Banksy and Damien Hirst. I am very excited for what is my first Dutch exhibition, having my work displayed alongside these great artists.

My works

For my show I have chosen 8 images that feel right together. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a series, but seeing them next to one another, I am very happy with my choices. Most of the photos are landscapes, but as is often the case with my photography, they are quite abstract. Half of the works are from my Island series and the other half are selections from other series or separate works. As a preview I have included one image from an upcoming series I shot during my recent trip to Denmark. My work was printed by Erik Fliek, who has done a wonderful job advising me and producing the prints.

Fellow Artists

I am accompanied at the Fair by two of my colleagues, great artists both. Elizabeth Kleinveld recreates the works of old masters in her photography and then gives it a playful, striking twist. One great example is the “Meisje met de Parel”, which is exquisitely recreated by Elizabeth and Epaul Julien (they operate under the artist name E2), but instead of using a Dutch girl as the “meisje”, Elizabeth opts to photograph an Asian girl for her take on this Dutch classic. Much of her work is inspired by the horrors of social injustice, exploring themes of prejudice and racism. Elizabeth has 7 works on display.

Dimitris Kritsilis is a Motion Graphics designer who can create dreamlike images out of thin air, it would seem. Conjuring up a cloud in a beautifully lit room, or take you on a tour of beautiful architecture that is nowhere to be found in reality, because this world is virtual and created by Dimitris. He has six screens playing one of his creations each up on the wall. I am honored to have my work hang alongside the work of these talented people!

If you are interested in owning one or more of my works displayed at the fair, I’ve created a separate page, to get in contact with me.

Sampling into Assimil8or

Today I decided to sample some non-electronic instruments into my Eurorack sampler. A tabla, a cabasa, a wooden flute and some pillbottles.

A critic in time

Today I spent some time selecting poems I wrote in my early 20’s for the website. It feels strange to critique myself and my poetry 20-some years later.

A synth sci-fi short story

I’m not recording. I’ve decided to just let this happen. It’s been going on for a while now. And I think it is probably too late anyway.

Lost in a memory hole

I’m not sure what happened. I got lost in a memory hole tonight. Well, I can reconstruct it, sort of. And it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.

Bob Knutton – It Sates Itself On Doubt

Ventured into darker regions today, tribal modular drums, echoing and distorted thrust me into the gloom. I explain how I recorded the track and what gear I used.

CausaliDox on NTRFRNZ Radioshow

This past week the track There Is Nothing In The World from my CausaliDox album Between The Leaves Lies Eternity opened the excellent NTRFRNZ radio show in Brasil.

sonOnos – Tomorrow

Got lost in the machines today. It was nice. 

CausaliDox – Cohort Death Signal

I wanted to make the Pro-One sound dangerous. Things started building from there. It sounds like an existential threat.

website redesign finished

Over the past 6 weeks I have worked on redesigning my website. It was hard work, but I am so glad I stuck with it, because I am quite happy with the redesign.

CausaliDox – You’ll Know When

The first track in 6 weeks. I have been busy, distracted, agitated, frustrated... Does one instinctively sense the end of things? I wonder. I'd hope I'd know. You'll know when I know. Gear...
