Recently i acquired a highly important early Ossip (Snoek) work for my collection. The work is titled Cirkel 1 from 1978 and consists of multiple layers of papers ( including musical notes in the corners) and it shows the very early beginnings of his search for the ultimate work by Ossip. It has everything. Composition, technique, mouvement, color and this typical use of multiple layers of paper, making this an important and valuable Ossip. Cirkel 1 is now for sale at the art section of this blog.
Just take a look and see that i added this beautiful hypnotizing Ossip to FTN collection about 2 months ago at http://www.ftn-blog.com. It comes from the the Vescom collection . A collection which was created over the last 3 decades and was sold at auction in Amsterdam. I was lucky to buy this “JONGEN” by Ossip together with 2 works by Joris Geurts ( in another blog later). This “Jongen” is one of the more “static” works . It has the same qualities as the works he presented in his exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag . Most of the works i know of have moving parts but this late Nineties /early 2000 work was made when composition and image were the typical Ossip elements within a work of art. I know that there exists also a larger version of ” JONGEN” which is depicted in the Ossip monograph , but this version measures 112 x 89 cm. and is signed and dated Ossip, 23-11-2003 and now available at http://www.ftn.blog.com
