Arja Hop

home

Two places. One in Northern Europe in a busy capital (Amsterdam) and one in southern Europe where Mountains surround me (Sicily). A real home and heart situation.

treasure

Wonder, vulnerability, innocence and aesthetics.

fame

Subject versus object.

engine

The sun and matter.

wisdom

The nature and nuture of being.

heroes

Piero Della Francesca, Velasquez, Louise Bourgeoise, Anish Kapoor and others, those who create art that evokes a sense of touch, art that looks at me defiantly and says: What’s up! Some philosophers, and a local walls creator. 

time journey

A deep dive into the still undefined area of the painting adventure. From one art work to the other discoveries.

sacrifice

Morning and evening meditation, plongggg………., plongggg. To pay more attention to the things I do, like the miraculous pigments and colours that I use. But it’s not every day.

vice

Non conformism

cats/dogs

The ‘free’ birds in the back yard, sometimes high floating in the air or low pecking under a bush, or sitting on a branch always in motion.
