Artwork Description

Oil on wood, ready to hang.

Signed certificate of authenticity.

This artwork comes with an external frame

Original Oil Painting with objects arranged in a classic manner, resembling the style of the old Dutch masters. The reason why this painting is made on a marine ply wood is its durability, and that it can be prepared to a smooth surface to work on. A canvas would be too coarse, although it is a much loved medium, it would only give the 'impression' of detail as most would not bother to have real linen. Different layers of oil paint are placed in glazes of pigments over one another to achieve depth and increase the illusion of dimension. All this takes a lot longer and increases the drying times. Yet history has proven that it is the longest lasting art technique, with no deterioration of colours, backed up it up by many centuries old paintings in national galleries, when the finest oil-paint pigments are used.

All art by Jos Kivits

Just a few objects found in the house of a deceased uncle who was reading the paper while having his last smoke from the Ming tobacco pot (which lid is invisible behind the box.  The box with some small personal trinkets, a small checkered  pill box,  and an empty red glass flower vase, as he was a widower and did not like to see dying flowers in his house anymore. The feeling of holding something in your hands that is hundred of years old, like the pewter and the ceramic Japanese vase, gives me a feeling of agelessness. It vibrates through my entire body and to spend weeks painting something like this climaxes to an explosion in my imagination. A painting of this calibre is and always will be an eye catcher when people realise it has not been created with shortcuts and tricks, but genuinely by discipline and artistry without smoke and mirrors.
