Schermafbeelding 2020-04-05 om 12.28.23

This is the other Jan Hendrix. A contemporary of Jan Hendriks, but one that works from outside the Netherlands too and has a studio in Mexico. This land and its culture has a direct influence on his works. Hendrix is inspired by nature and this shows in practically all his works. The reason for this second blog on a “HENDRIX/HENDRIKS” is the catalogue i recently acquired . It is a galeria de arte Mexicano publication from 1980 in which series of polaroids are combined into some great works of art…..the subject….nature of cours and because i myself like the MOLESKINE notebooks i included a nice video of Hendrix and his use of the Moleskine’s

Schermafbeelding 2018-04-11 om 11.35.04

During the time i filled my Piet Dirkx daily in the last 2 years, i frequently looked into the publications that i have on and by Piet Dirkx and each time it struck me that these were all quite special. Covers out of the ordinary, special binding and one even one resembling the famous Moleskine notebooks that Piet uses for his notes and drawings nowadays.

Some of these are still available at www.ftn-books.com. Not all are listed… so inquire for the ones in store, but if not in the inventory of www.ftn-books.com keep looking and searching for them , they really are still out there to be picked up.
