Dragline cream (1993)

In the same period I covered a mechanical diggar with buckets of wipped cream..


After the first series of the image of the Milkmaid, Kitchenmaid appeared in different ways in my work.

It started in the Bloemstraat in the Jordaan (1992). I reconstructed the painting of Vermeer.
The wall is painted like the painting, the nail in the right place, some attributes, basket, jug, bread.

Everything on the table I painted with bronze paint and black shoe polish. In this way it looks like a bronze statue. The plinth is painted with Delft Blue tiles. A colleague put me in the right milkmaid position.

We discovered that the girl in the state that Vermeer painted never could have poured the milk into a bowl while her face at the same time is turned to the spectator as in Vermeer’s painting. She would have made a mess! …

Since this project the image of the Milkmaid pops up in my work in different ways.
