Schermafbeelding 2017-10-02 om 13.45.10.png

In 2002 Raymond Pettibon made the opening exhibition for the GEM museum. The exhibition was curated by Roel Arkesteijn. Pettibon worked day and night to include over 600 drawings and designs, but he finished in time to make it a memorable exhibition. After the opening he had time to make and finish 3 comic books, which were printed ( copied ) and stapled “in house” by Chantal Sieuw. These 3 titles are since their publication date highly sought after and collectable Pettibon books , because the edition was only 100 copies for each title these are rare editions to any art collection.

The edition is numbered xx/100

The Brush Life blog is the third and final in the series on Pettibon’s GEM publications and because of its autobiographical character it is by far the most important one and has become rare and expensive. For more information please contact me . POA.

Gerard Petrus Fieret (1924-2009)

fieret portrait m

 

Because i visited the Gemeentemuseum on Sunday and i had another hour available i decided to visit the Fieret exhibition in the GEM museum next door , curated in an excellent way by Wim van Sinderen and giving more insight in the person Fieret was and the art/photographs he made. When you have finished the exhibition and continue within the GEM and go downstairs you pass a long corridor in which the portraits of Fieret, which were taken throughout his life are presented. Portraits by Willem Diepraam,  Koos Breukel, Helena van der Kraan and many others make a great portrait gallery on Gerard Petrus Fieret. Of course this is not the best quality, but here are the photographs. They give a great impression of the colorful figure Fieret was.
