Yesterday was the last day of my second exhibition, which was part of Terug naar het Begin festival (Back to the Beginning festival) in the Netherlands.
Me and a few other students each created a concept for an artwork for the festival in just 8 weeks. After that, we had just 2 weeks to really create the artworks themselves. For me, that meant creating an artwork of 2meter (depth) x 2meter (width) x 6meter (height) in just 2 weeks, including a day to drive to Belgium to get 7000 meter glass fiber.
But we did it! The final artworks were stunning. Visitors really loved them, and so did the management of the festival. A lovely day.
I am very grateful for all the help I received from family and friends. Without them, I wouldn't have had enough time (or hands) to create the final artwork.
My artwork was on display in the tower of the church of Huizinge, a small village in Groningen. The church's steward really loves the artwork, so it will stay in the tower for a while, and will be available for visitors.

During the preparations of the second exhibition, I had another exhibition. My first, actually. It was a concert-exhibition, with students from the Conservatory and Art Academy. I made four paintings (in just 2 weeks) to match Antonín Dvořák's Piano Quintet No. 2 (Op. 81). Each of them matches one of the movements of the piece.
You can read more about them in the artists comments underneath each of them.
