Livestream: Dedicated to Nature for a Year

Johannes Schoonhoven (Amsterdam, 24 December 1975) is a Dutch Visual Abstract Artist.
His Work is based on Lines, Squares, Light, Shadow, and Repetition.
His Reliefs are made of Papier Mâché mixed with Gypsum in white, black, blue, red, and yellow.
The pre pigmented Papier Mâché is processed by Hand and with Painters’ Knives, creating Lines.
After a Drying Process of approximately two three weeks, the Papier Mâché is painted with Acrylic Paint and Pigment.
Schoonhoven develops his own Colors in a traditional way using various intense Pigments.
Making these Works is a Contemplative Experience for Johannes Schoonhoven in Collaboration with Nature.
His Works undergo various Drying Processes in an Atmosphere of Serenity.
The Result of his Works is unpredictable. The Drying Process has its own Physical Laws and forces the Papier Mâché into unexpected Shapes.
