Piet Dirkx weekly

As promissed another detail which shows the thick layers of wax paint Piet uses to make his compositions. This painting was discussed earlier in another blog on Piet and has been presented on 3 locations before it finally was part of our collection. Among the locations was the Biotoop project at the Haags Gemeentemuseum.

Piet Dirkx weekly ….5

Another heart by Piet Dirkx is this Heart on Wood executed in wax. Originally part of the Biotoop presentation this has recently become part of my personal collection. The heart is a bright yellow in a brownish /red wax underground. If you look carefully you can distinguish rectangles in the red background. Wax Heart on wood , aprox sizeĀ  55 x 40 cm.(collection W. van den Elshout).

Piet Dirkx weekly ….4

And now for something completely different….certainly not. The 4th weekly is devoted to another part of Biotoop. It is the trusted companion wile at the dinner table at my sisters home. The Piet Dirkx hanging and looking over the table, is chosen because of the blend it makes in colors with its surroundings. Whenever you put a vase with flowers below it, it appears that all the colors of the flowers are present within the wax painting. The size is a medium size of aprox 118 x 100 cm. (collection Thijs & Jochem Bakker / Lucas van den Elshout)
