The Muses – Online group exhibition (2017)

I’m participating in an online group exhibition about what inspires artists. Curator of this exhibition is Cynthia Willett.

My contribution:

I am a huge admirer of impressionist paintings, especially the landscapes of Claude Monet. I take a look at his landscape paintings regularly, both in museums, in books and online, as a source of inspiration for my landscape photography. The painting “Seine near Giverny” I found on the Internet in an (expired) announcement of an exhibition in the Philbrook Museum Of Art (Tulsa, OK), with the theme “Monet and the Seine” (2014). The “river paintings” of Monet, and especially this painting, inspired me to make a series of high ISO, grainy (non edited) photos on the banks of a river in the Netherlands. The photo “A day once dawned and it was beautiful” is one of them.
