INTO ETERNITY - Art of Giving


Een collectie van internationale artiesten transformeerde BorGerHub ‘Into Eternity’. Dit project vanuit het hart verbindt verschillende kunstwerelden en laat de bezoeker opgaan in de visie van de kunstenaars.

 

                  “The meeting of two eternities, the past and the future … is precisely the present moment”

- Henry David Thoreau

 

Met kunst in de wereld te zetten, geeft een kunstenaar iets van schoonheid, iets van betekenis.  We nemen dit ‘geven’ een stap verder. Met de hulp van kunst liefhebbers en kopers, geven we een deel van onze verkoop aan vijf goede doelen: Mila 4 Africa, Letsplayground, Nikela, Zelfmoordpreventie and Vzw Kiddo’s.
 

Georganiseerd door Borgerhub Stuyft van 22 tot 29 oktober 2021

 

goede doelen: Zelfdmoordpreventie, Let’splayground, Nikela, MilaforAfrica en Kiddo’s


kunstenaars: Rachel Agnew, Boy & Erik Stappaerts, Earnest, Christine Clinckx, Sebastien Le Clef, Wendy Krochmal, Flowris, Elona Saidoul,

Mixing Identities, London, I participated in this event with the work:


Coming to Terms


oil&pigment on canvas, 70cmx50cm 


In our inner struggle we encounter both the light as the dark sides of ourself. Finding a balance between the two is challenging.   How can we embrace their existence  in order to be authentic ?  A spiritual connection, shedding light on it, can help as a guideline on the path to acceptance and love.

POWER


 

 

 

 

at Multitude Signature, Zonnedauwstraat 29, 2610 Wilrijk (Antwerp) this exhibition hosted four lovely events:

 

24.06.18      Power Sessions

 

We invited people to book a session of twenty minutes to be with pieces I created.

It was suggested to come alone or to bring one other person at the most so you were free to take your time to sit, stare, listen, to walk around, to sleep, to be.

We were outside to welcome you and offcourse had a drink and a chat.  A day of flow.

 

 

02.12.17 & 16.12.17 two evening diners, exhibition in the spirit of Plato's Dialogue

 

exploring the theme 'Power'

surrounded by the new work of Earnest

 

Monday Agbonzee Jr. coloured the room with his guitar

 

30.12.17 a lazy afternoon, early evening with tea, coffee, cake & wine

 

endulging in company, thoughts and feelings around the theme 'POWER'

surrounded by the work of Earnest

 

Mathias Van Den Bosch generously shared his music on guitar

 

 

For this exhibition I also was invited by Leo Reijnders, de Wolkenbreiers, in his program at Radio Centraal, Antwerp on the 5th of February 2018. (www.thecloudknitters.be)

There is no division of power, only love
ThankGodforTrauma!

PLATO's CAVE


Through an expo of paintings Earnest brings the allogory of Plato's Cave in three parts:


ThankGodforTrauma!

the Cosmic Connection

the Reality of Beauty

At what used to be a Vredegerecht,  now BorGerHub, Borgerhout. 


29.09.19 - 16.02.20 Aanwezigheid van de kunstenaar iedere donderdag van 13 - 15 uur


                              Het fragment vertelt het achterliggende verhaal en duurt slechts 5 à 7 minuten.

Silent Conversations


In creating these works I have extensive conversations in silence.  Be it with my soul, my inner truth, the universe, my subconscious, my heart, … each work explores a different emotion or subject.  I enjoy having these exchanges and seeing them becoming visualised.  I invite you to have your own conversation with any work that speaks to you.  I consider these works as food for the soul.  As everyone doesn’t love the same dishes, this might as well be the case with some of this work for you. Not everyone is equally hungry.  Be my guest to take a bite, a degustation menu or to eat à la carte.

Letting go


Vol van genade     25.03.16 - 25.04.16


De wondere wereld.


Als derde project van MULTITUDE vulden we

het kasteel Sterckshof te Deurne met schoonheid en liefde.


Op Goede Vrijdag 25 maart zijn jullie welgekomen om het kasteel

en haar inwoners te begroeten en met ons het glas te heffen op het heden en de toekomst.

WHERE

Sterckshof - Hooftvunderlei 160, 2100 Antwerpen, Belgium



In 2015 Earnest was invited by CO NOVA to organise a tryptych of expositions.  I called it ALL + 1 = 1.

Love is a cocoon of happiness in a world of chaos

Final part of the ALL + 1 = 1 series, was, where the universal and the individual fuse into one, being


L O V E 


“…very simple: an expo about love.  Can you capture that in an image?

What does it look like   ? … “

ALL + 1 = 1

ALL = 1 & LOVE = 1

LOVE = ALL


7 artists showed love.
