Today the panorama I made for second hand store Foenix was unveiled and many people came: thank you all! Director Arjin Jans gave an introduction and I gave a small lesson about landscapes. Text on the work translated: ‘For two months Foenix put aside all the painted landscapes that came in for artist Bas Fontein. These landscapes - which previously offered many living rooms in Apeldoorn an alternative view - are brought together by the artist into one panorama. A new landscape is created with seascapes, farms, forests and winter scenes; without beginning or end.’ I found pictures of the event on the twitter account from Dutch political party ‘Green Left’, other pics are from Marchien de Vries, Adèle Reiss, Tada Projecten and the black and white ones are from StrangeArt (Roelof Rump).
