Something Old, Something New

“Coincidence does not exist in art but there is a discovery or an artistic insight. If you are sensitive to it and look with an open mind at the world than you will discover forms, alone or a combination of forms, that create a very beautiful entirety. In contrast to the goal and the function for it. Rubbish does not exist, everything can serve multiple purposes.” ______________________________________________ Arnold Aerts

Project in words of inspiration ___________________________________________________________________________ architecture, buildings, environment, structures, repetition, construction, bridges, contrast in colour, in shape, coarse or refined, tough or fragile, old or new, old elements in a new composition, merge into each other, disappear into each other, repel, accentuate each other, upside down, a game with shapes, colours and structures. home, shelter,protection, correctness, picturesque, perfection is boring, nonchalantly swings, imperfection is exciting, irritation is inspiration, surprise is striking.
