Another artist born in the early sixties who i admire is Guido Geelen. Geelen was first introduced to me when we sold the RABO limited art editions some 20 years ago. In the series of Rabo art made available at affordable prices were works a.o. by Dolron, Diederix and ….Guido Geelen. There was a series of dutch tulips cast in bronze of which every “tulip” was different because the cast was used only once. Making this a unique piece of art. I remember we had about 10 tulips lined up to make our final choice and this work still graces our home.

It is a timeless and very powerful work born from a technique whic is classic and was used multiple times after we had bought our Tulip. The Noordbarabants Museum has several “flowers” created in this way by Geelen, but for us our TULIP is still the most beautiful. www.ftn-books.com has some Geelen publications available.
