Jacco Olivier 1

Last weekend I visited Gallery Ron Mandos in Amsterdam to look at art by Jacco Olivier.

Jacco Olivier fuses painting and filmmaking by repeatedly reworking paintings in generous casual brush strokes and systematically photographing each development. The various stages are combined into projected animations. The resulting films are enigmatic and experiential – moving in and out of abstraction they reveal the traces and decisions made by the artist in the process of painting. While there is a clear and quite complex process involved in their creation, Olivier does not set a thematic agenda for the works, or for their relationship to one another. The films are instead imagined as windows onto converging, and often elegantly simple, moments of daily life – a bus journey, a swim in the ocean, or a walk through the woods. At this convergence of painting and cinema, however, lies an uneasy tension, a feeling that something is about to happen or has just happened that is unexpected and beyond our control. Source.

Smoking cold

This is not a great picture by any standards: for one, it is out of focus. I still like it though. Depicted are fans of the band A Day to Remember having a smoke outside of The Melkweg on a chilly evening. A smoker has to endure a lot for his addiction.

Candlelight

I took this picture last Wednesday. I went to the cinema with my friend Paul. We saw the film 'The Illusionist', which I can seriously recommend, it' a wonderful animated film. Afterwards, Paul and got a coffee at the t-room in the Melkweg. My girlfriend joined us. During our conversation I took this shot of the candle on the table. Candlelight, it always reminds me of the radio show by the same name, in which corny love poems written by amateurs were read.

Dexter's hobby-room?

Is it Dexter's hobby-room? Nah, it isn't. It's one of the rooms at my work that is under construction. Since one of the broadcast agencies moved out, they are redecorating the place. Gives a lot of dust and noise at the work place though.

Merel at the bar

T huis, Melkweg, 9:00 pm
My friend Merel ordering at the bar in the Melkweg. She, Linda and I just saw the film 'Doogtooth'. A weird but fascinating film. What do you think caught Merel's eye and made her look left?

Under the freeway

This is just around the corner from that 'lovely hotel' of the last post. It doesn't look like a cosy spot to hang out at night.

Smart cookie

Sunday, Vertigo, 1:00 pm 
Most of the time you get a cookie with your tea or coffee. When you're lucky it's baked in this century. If you're very lucky, you get chocolate instead of a stale cookie. Sometimes, the cookie is perfect though. Can't remember how this one tasted, but I do remember the lively conversation I had with Liselotte in Vertigo when this shot was made. Liselotte is working on a book that's coming out this April. Exciting stuff.
