“where is the idea”?


An interview with visual artist Mark Verdoes where you see him working at his studio by the River Rijn in Wageningen Holland, as an integral part of the project I Am The River, the theme arises from the question “where is the idea”?

A darling in the river…



I sold one of my darlings to Kunstcentrum Haarlem. ‘Not To Talk About It’ (110 x 140 cm, broken bone tree seeds and pencil on canvas)
It is part of a new series of paintings under the name ‘Zhuang Zi Dialogue’ that I am recently working on. I am using the ‘Zhuang Zi’, a collection of ancient taoist stories as an inspiration. Trust this painting will follow ‘the river’ and find a nice wall to hang on somewhere…
