work#artBooglogoReflectieWORKHEARTDouwe Buwalda. As an artist I combine images and poetry in my work, using all possible means and media. I am working on the tension between dynamics and reflection, which through silence and concentration comes into its own. The work starts to take shape, forms a conscience and starts to breathe like a skin, in each new environment a new and different way.
Up until 2010 I have educated students in methods of cultural work in order to help integrate all kinds of art into community art events. In the Centrum voor Nascholing / University of Amsterdam, I have educated and trained professionals to supervise people in their work. Make life an artwork, incorporate what you want to realize. Bringing this perception into visible and poetical art in public spaces, I set up possibilities to bring it in debate, guiding groups in a reflective way of thinking and collaborating. I have a studio for practicing supervision, coaching and other                      guidance projects for professionals in their work in Kampen, The Netherlands

My work has a theatrical character. This is no surprise, because as a theatre designer he creates and builds decors for the stage, film and television.
I also provide other artists artistically and technical support and coaches art projects of colleague

png1work#art – artists duo. Established in 2010. Creating art we work together, each starting from our own ideas and inventions, inviting us to react on what comes up in our minds. Searching to express what lives inside, a common perspective develops in our eyes. That process keeps us sharp, like both sides of a knife. The working of that knife on its turn, gives the work the opportunity to make space for itself, growing into what it intends to be.
We also keep on looking for new settings for the images, to give them the opportunity to start their own life in giving a new shape by meaning and aura. So locations are an important factor too.The work on its turn changes the setting into a new environment for the visitor. And that change of scenery represents a new framework for us to concentrate on further perspectives and themes and motivates us to create new work                       elsewhere. So our artwork is never done. Like Dutch poet Rutger Kopland says: if you find something, you didn’t look for it properly
