Animal love 

In 1998, when this artwork was made, I had a dog, a German Shorthaired Pointer. His name was Kay. And when one walks around with a relatively large dog, people tend to react to it quite a bit. Often nice, but not always.

Not welcome 

Kay was at times not allowed to enter. So automatically, before I stepped in somewhere, I checked whether I was allowed in with my dog. From then on, I started to notice all kinds of different signs, and stickers with texts and pictures on them, to indicate that dogs were not welcome. This collage contains a selection of the plates I found, but there are many more.


In those days most of my art had to do with my reaction to society’s bureaucratic, superficial or aggressive tendencies. I was leading my life and trying to be happy. And how people behaved or negatively reacted towards me, or things I saw, made me show my surprise via my art.

This series of 3 collages has been framed by Boselie Encadreurs BV in Den Bosch (Netherlands).

Because I was an art-student and these artworks were going to be shown at my final exam exhibition, Boselie has been so generous to sponsor me. They created three exclusive, unique hand-crafted frames. For all quality framing jobs, you can put your trust in Boselie Encadreurs:


Since Boselie Encadreurs have sponsored me. I don’t calculate the costs of the frame. This means the following calculation with this particular artwork:

151,8 + 136,6 x € 9.

My current price is € 9 per linear cm.

Total price (including the frame) € 2595,60

Since it would be great if the series of 3 artworks could stay together, I offer the complete series of 3 framed collages together for € 7.700.
