stamps

I have been using my round stamp for over twenty years but on the Blackfellas Collection recently I also used the "kangaroo stamp". It makes me remember I am in Australia!

After all, I have been living abroad for more than forty years. I see everything around me with the eyes of a visitor.

Flying men, acrylic and pen on paper, 840x600

Clemens has a grandson in the UK and wanted to send him something for his birthday. He asked if I could paint a something and we thought like abseilingen or hanggliding anyway I realised I was blocked because I had a ten year old in mind and I am not good at kid stuff.anyway: i give up and will make something for the mother instead.

a little bit later in the day.

Blackwoman, acrylic on paper, 700x500

Blackwoman with pusycat I started on a Blackwoman and the cat walked over the painting. She has the same colours.

Later I will do the final one in this series as it's making me feel again hooked.
In a way too easy. Just the final one which will, hopefully, surprise you!!

The Prince, acrylic on paper, 470x680

as I am painting the bodies of the Black Fellas I add later the decorations and by the chablone technique. This shows you the Added on affect.On top off. Like buttons on a white man's jacket. Or stripes of paint on bodies.

I don't know if I am right in saying this but the bodies are quiet a-sexual.
Like a picture of Queen Elizabeth in her full Regalia.

Blackman in contact with Spirit, 600x840

Living in Cairns in our street I think about 95% are Aboriginals or indiginous peoples from the far North and Isles. A neighbour is something like a Prince. His father would be a King.

I asked the Prince if I can paint him in all his Regaila and he loves the idea. I most definitely want to paint these images from my white man's view.

I asked H..., a girlfriend, about the markings on the man's body and she told me: I don't know, thats "mens things"

Deadeddie

this is de painting die ik deed terwijl eddie, die ik niet aardig vond - maar hij keek op z'n rare manier, naar me op n.b.!! - stervende was. ik zei toen hij me vertelde dat hij HIV had: Lucky you, nu weet je precies ongeveer hoe lang je nog moet leven. Dit was in een kroeg in Sydney waar ik hem moest ontmoeten na hem enkele jaren niet gezien te hebben. Hij wist even niet of hij me van de stoel moest slaan of gewoon enz. Toen ik zo gewoon over de dood kon praten had ik veel contact met hem maar vond hem nog steeds een klootzak, weliswaar een stervende klootzak.
