Recently I’m into an old Dutch craft: Staphorst dotting. With special stamps, made of all kinds of nails, I make patterns wich I use in my paintings.
One of the paintings is “Biblebelt”, named after a geographic belt in The Netherlands with the most conservative religious habitants.
Staphorst dotting is one of the most original Dutch craft and its adopted by the Unesco World Heritage list.
