A velvet bridge

At the beginning of this year I was asked by the Kloosterkerk in The Hague to make illustrations for a book “A velvet bridge” with prayers and meditative texts by Rev. Margreet Klokke. For each of the ten themes I made an abstract illustration on the iPad, based on the idea of my sketches and paintings with the ‘shadows’ theme (as if the ‘sky’ makes paintings on the surface of the earth). It is interesting that religion and art in the book come together in search of inspiration and comfort, each in their own way, but also reinforcing each other. This book is available for € 22 in the Kloosterkerk on a Sunday after the service at the book table, via www.boekengilde.nl/boekenshop and at the Ichtusboekhandels in The Hague and Leiden. The book is also available in the Hooglandse church in Leiden.
