Piet Dirkx weekly

The following weeks two more details of early Piet Dirkx compositions. The first is a detail of a long lath on which 13 wooden panels are placed. These panels are far from random ,because these panels are individual compositions/paintings by themselves.

These panels come from the work SHALL I COMPARE THE TO A SUMMERS DAY.

weekly Piet Dirkx : SHALL I COMPARE THE TO A SUMMER’S DAY

 

dirkx shall i compareThis is a line from a Shakespeare sonnet . Piet Dirkx finds his titles everywhere and notes them on cigarboxes and Moleskine note books  and this is probably one of the most illustrous of all. The work of art is also exceptional. The first time i saw it was at the first Piet Dirkx exhibition in the Ravesteijnzaal at the Haags Gemeentemuseum and this was the second work i acquired for my collection and never regretted it. It is long work of art , measuring aprox. 200 cm and its height being ca. 15 cm. The lat is tiles and signed and dated by Piet Dirkx. The work consists of 14 small paintings on wood , placed on a special lat.
