The Beehive Exhibited

On March 10, my first exhibition opens with, among others, this piece, showing the old Bijenkorf by architected W.M.Dudok on it’s original location, surrounded by present day buildings. The old Bijenkorf (or “Beehive”), a legendary building with a tragic history: opened in 1930, severily damaged during the bombing in 1940, and finally demolished in 1960. Soon virtually resurrected on the exhibition at the Nivo Dirk Smit 76, Rotterdam.

UPDATE: this, and the other two sections of the Bijenkorf triptych, were also part of the Dudok exhibition at the Oranjebrug gallery in Schiedam on July 2nd and 3rd, 2016

My work explores the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
