Morning glory, 2014

Morning glory, 2014
inkjet print, frame
30,5 x 25 cm (28,1 x 22,2 cm)
edition 3 + 1 AP

Note / Van Warmerdam often uses image and title as two dissimilar entities living in symbiosis. Such a combination emphasizes elements of what is already literally shown in the image itself. In this work it is a combination of time and the light of a photographed running iPad apparently switched on in the morning when one gets up.

Another day, 2011

Another day, 2011
screen print on paper, frame
110 x 80 cm

Note / Throughout her 2010 stay in South Africa, Van Warmerdam took photos of both the moon and the sun. Time and again she captured a super-romantic kitschy sun with her camera. The title appears in large letters as a kind of lowered horizon in the picture. In addition, she has manipulated the silkscreen prints with various rounds of iris printing, making every print unique.

Note / MvW: ‘Sometimes when I look at the work of other artists, I would really love to make passionate paintings, but I know that I’m not cut out for that. Once, on an impulse, instead of a painting I made a drawing about the heart, soul and mind.’

Mad cows!, 2002
study – colour photograph on dibond, perspex
20,6 x 31 cm

Note / MvW: ‘Someone once said to me, “Look, a cow with a ‘laken’ (sheet); that’s a Lakenvelder.” I’d never seen these animals in that light before, and they do indeed look as though they’re wearing a sheet. This was in the time of mad cow disease and I thought: this cow is black and white, and black and white can be reversed.

Idealen (Ideals), 2002
digital print on paper, frame
approx. 30 x 42 cm

Note / Van Warmerdam expresses her way of looking and thinking in a great many sculptures. Occasionally she also does that in a photograph, as in Ideals. Here she shows the difference between dreaming and making that dream a reality. MvW: ‘It’s a photographic work in which I conceive a plan to “do” or make something, with the anticipation of how beautiful it might become.’
