Rembrandt by Light

Nomination for Rijksstudio award 2020

Rembrandt is the master of light and shadow. In this work, I used his light accents as a pattern to punch hundreds of small holes into a pleated curtain. This gets you Rembrandt's light into your home. Rembrandt's painting literally shines through your 

curtain and you create a lively and playful painting of real light.

 

The play of light changes continuously and thanks to the image is projected onto your wall or floor with the right lighting. In your living room, with only the  

mood lighting on, or from yourbed, you create a private moment with the great master. Or you can look at the curtain as it is backlit by the streetlights in the evening, or the sun in the morning.
