SIJBRANDA SEALINES - HOPE for HAPPINESS 2021
Hope for Happiness
In the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 I made the Sealines # 8 series with the subtitle: "Hope for Happiness". Light in the centre depicts hope at the end of each perspective.
Born in Hoek van Holland, a coastal town by the sea, the sea has always been a source of inspiration. At the separation of earth and water, the space above and around is endless in a kaleidoscope of colours.
The horizon, an imaginary line between water and air, between heaven and earth, separation of elements, end of perspective. The horizon and me. There I am, face to face with that fathomless perspective. Suppose I could make a horizon of all visible water and sky colours, then I could choose from a kaleidoscope of perspectives. From this idea the Sealines Collection © originated.
A mystical dimension can also be experienced in the light, perspective, horizon and colours of sea and sky: the viewer can reflect on the all-encompassing spaces in front of, above, below and behind the horizon and thus merge into a larger whole.
As an artist and as a person I am always looking to broaden the perspective, both internally and externally in the visible world.
As far as techniques are concerned, I combine photography with current image editing techniques. The Sealines Collection © are printed on aluminium and acrylic glass. Different sizes. In limited editions. Signed, of course.
