Last weekend, during the Art Route Kralingen, I opened the doors of my studio to everyone who was interested to see where and how I work. I was happily surprised to see so many people had made an effort to visit my studio. Thank you all for coming and your heartwarming interest in my work. It was a delight to see and meet you all!
Hoping for a sunny autumn weekend during the art route Kralingen Crooswijk, I will open my studio for everyone who wants to come and see my work and the place where it is made.
My studio is located in Rotterdam in an old school building, situated next to the river Maas and surrounded by a tiny patch of nature.
I will show work made for several projects, including The Moussiah, Terra Ultima, Volkskrant Fairytales, That Damn Day. Large and small works, framed and unframed, originals and prints.
Just to enjoy but, if you are interested, also for sale.
During the art route a special studio discount of 15% applies to all purchases above € 50,-.
In addition, the work of five other participating artists can be viewed in the building.
These artists are Sander Buijk, Danielle Hefter, Eugenie Schardijn, Jan van de Pavert and Liesbeth van Ginneken.
So feel welcome for a visit to my studio on October 13 and 14, 2018.
The address is Nesserdijk 406 in Rotterdam.
My studio is open from 10:00 to 17:00 hrs.
I hope to see you!
Last Saturday was the opening of the Terra Ultima exhibition in the Museum of Natural History in Rotterdam. Museum director Kees Moeliker gave a great and funny speech (unfortunately, Redmond O’Hanlon was sick).
The event was very wel attended. It was so crowded people had to take shifts to visit the van Roonzaal. While waiting people could have a drink at the Dead Animal Bar, or buy a limited edition print in the giftshop of the Museum.
The exhibition will run until the 7th of January, 2018.
O’Hanlon has become known for his journeys into some of the most remote jungles of the world (Borneo, the Amazon basin and Congo). He also has written a harrowing account of a trip to the North Atlantic on a trawler.
In the Netherlands, Redmond O’Hanlon was a guest and co-presenter on the program the Beagle: In Darwin’s wake, made for VPRO Television. For the same broadcasting organization another series was made in which he introduces the viewer to his heroes of the nineteenth century. The program was called O’Hanlons helden (O’Hanlon’s heroes) and was awarded with the prestigious Dutch television award ‘De Zilveren Nipkowschijf’.
