a great art manifestation and a trip to Switserland...

Wouw, the art manifestation in Leiden (Kunstroute Leiden) was a wunderful experience. I met a lot of nice people and sold some of my artwork. I turned my workingspace into a little shop which felt so familiar to me, since my father used to be a shop owner.

Shortly after that  we went to Switserland to visit my father in law. We stayed in a beautiful little village named Lutry, next to the Lake. We were very lucky with the weather and walked everyday to see the mountains, the boats, the water and 
the other people also having a good time.

We went by train to and from Switzerland which took us about eleven hours traveling both times. Although the views are beautiful from the train, I also spent a lot of time doodling and doodling some more. At home, back in my studio, I worked a little more on these doodles. 
Here are some examples.

Have a nice october!

what to show in an exhibition?

preparing for the Kunstroute coming weekend....

difficult, difficult!
do I show this... or that... or both?
do I show a lot.... or a very select part of my work?
or something in between?

de regen trommelt zachtjes op het dak
als 100 vingers op een houten tafelblad
... een liefdeslied voor het leven!


Binnenkort start ik met KUNSTRUIMTE MARISKA EYCK. Vandaag heb ik alvast een beetje geoefend. Allemaal kleine canvassen naar beneden gehaald en eens kijken hoe het zou kunnen worden.

Wat KUNSTRUIMTE MARISKA EYCK precies gaat worden weet ik nog niet. Maar er zal in ieder geval veel ruimte zijn voor kunst. Kunst van mij, maar waarschijnlijk ook van anderen.

Na de zomer gaat het echt van start, maar voor die tijd speel ik al van tijd tijt tijd een beetje gallerietje.

Soon I will be starting KUNSTRUIMTE MARISKA EYCK (= ROOM FOR ART AT MARISKA EYCK). Today I have been practicing a litlle bit. I took a lot of my small canvasses downstairs to see how things can be later on.

I don't know what exactly KUNSTRUIMTE MARISKA EYCK (= ROOM FOR ART AT MARISKA EYCK) is going to be. What I do know is that there will be a lot of room for art. My art and art of others.

After summer I will really start with it, but in the meantime I will play around a little bit at pretending to own a gallery.

door het toeval gemaakt, ontstaan
ze kennen meer variatie dan ik zelf kan verzinnen

totally f.... up my blog

Hello everybody

I totally destroyed my former blog/site (www.pasabyeyck.com).
Probably due to a fierce form of internet-analphabetics I am suffering from right now.
Now I am making a new blog and site.
Maybe it's just nice: a fresh start.
That's what I needed anyway.
So here I go.....


Drawing for my book... 

When will it be finished? 

I don't know... 

I've only been working on it for 15 years or so? 

That is on and of..

today was a day of ...

today was a day of finding words in unexpected places, 

of finding bright red painted pieces of paper

on the floor of my studio and of playing 

with glue and photoshop...

DADA en hoe maak ik (of jij) kunst van toeval...

Gisteren las ik in de DADA , mijn favoriete kunsttijdschrift (uitgegeven door Plint) over 'dada'. Dada was een kunststroming in het begin van de vorige eeuw (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dada).

Geinspireerd door dada en de methodes die zij 

hanteerden maakte ik vanochtend het volgende gedicht:

en dit is weer gebaseerd op dit volledig willekeurige stukje tekst dat ik in mijn atelier vond:

Hoe een volkomen zielloze verzameling van woorden kan veranderen in kunst... dat is dus KUNST! 

Je kunt dit ook heel leuk doen met een programma dat ik op internet tegenkwam: Magnetic Poetry online.

jippy, it's the weekend!

I closed the door behind my last client of this week just now.

It's the beginning of the weekend and I quickly rebuild my private practice office into an art studio.

Not that I need another studio since I have a really big one in the attick.

But in the weekend and the evenings I want to create very close near my family members. So I invented a way to mystically transform my office downstairs into a studio. About 5 to 10 minutes of magic and tah-dah.... 

What a luxery in every sense: being in the same room as the ones I love and at the same time being able to do what I love the most, which is: drawing, painting, making art or something that is supposed to look like art.

Lucky happy me!!

a new print

the road

The road is a print of an abstract collage. 

We can look at our life as if it is a road.  

A road that is always colorful and surprising. 

This piece of art can be obtained with different backgrounds: oldfashioned brown wrappingpaper, deep dark red, grey or blue. 

You can put the work either horizontal or 

vertical on the wall.

prints of my work are available at 'werk aan de muur'



Spring is

Find a nice

Watch the

See the
grass grow

it is best to do nothing

But sit,
watch, listen…

It may not
solve your problems right away

But then…
at least you have the flowers

And through

You can
feel the springtime entering your soul

your ever running thinking mind

talk, write, draw, scream!

don't use violence to 'solve' your conflicts

I wish Paris 7-9 january 2015 to be the last time
