Last weekend and beginning this week we took a 'work' holiday to The Netherlands. Besides visiting both parents we travelled further up north to Ton's sister - installing a wooden floor for her, that's where brothers are for, not?
We finally had a chance to see my brother-in-law's workshop. Lukas is an artist - in his spare time, he's daily/nightly work is nurse. His workshop is definitely in need of some urgent repairs, the main reason for going to his 'atelier' was to empty several almost overflowing buckets - roof is leaking badly. But he doesn't complain, the atelier is part of a school building nominated for renovation and in the mean-time there's nowhere else that's as cheap and as social as there.
This 'painting' is what greets you as soon as you enter. At first it almost gave me the creeps! But after another, closer, look it is a very intriguing art-work.
Other skeletons, mostly bird sculls, are draped around iron bars, plant stems, coat hangers etc.
Bike frames, skeletons by any other name:
A white head with gleamy eyes and teeth, something that when placed in the proper place would scare IMHO even the most heroic person.
And I guess these are the remains of a pc-geek ;-)
So after Lukas Schotanus becomes famous, remember where you saw him first: here!
