Earlier this year I got an email from Rüdiger Hoffmann. He and his wife Maria were asked by HH Sheikh Abdullah Bin Mohammed, a nephew of the ruler of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to open an art centre in Ras Al-Khaimah, the capital of the emirate Ras Al-Khaimah. I don't have definite date just yet, but the gallery should open its doors by the end of this year.

I'm honored to be one of the selected artists for the inaugural exhibition. On view will be my painting Love and this portrait I made of Maria enjoying a portrait of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol. Both paintings are already in the UAE. I cannot wait for the gallery to open!

kind regards, Gerard

Guernica 2.0- Woman Fiddling With Phone In Front Of Painting By Pablo Picasso

Guernica is probably Picasso's most powerful political statement. He painted it as an immediate reaction to the Nazi's bombing on the Basque town of Guernica during Spanish Civil War.

Guernica shows the tragedies of war and the suffering it inflicts upon individuals, particularly innocent civilians. It's now seen as a universal symbol against war. The woman on my painting is staring at her phone.

The woman on my painting is looking at a portrait of Jackie Kennedy by Andy Warhol. In the weeks that followed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963, Warhol began to collect pictures of the widowed First Lady that flooded the popular press.

He had silkscreens made of his various Jackie images and began to print them on small canvases with blue- and gold-colored grounds. The close-cropped images here reproduces a moment shortly before any shots were fired and soon after.

I recently made a few studies of people enjoying works of art by Alphonse Mucha. I settled on making this larger piece of a man enjoying his painting entitled 'Reverie' which means 'dreaming'.

Alphonse Mucha was a Czech painter and decorative artist best known for his distinct Art Nouveau or Jugendstil style, an art movement that was most popular between 1890 and 1910. Mucha produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs.

Art Nouveau means New Art and was a reaction to the academic art of the 19th century. It was inspired by Celtic art and natural forms and structures, particularly the curved lines of plants and flowers The painting my figure is enjoying is a clear example.

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
36 1/2" x 27 2/3" or 93,3 x 70 cm
2007

In an Ikea store painting of I saw a woman and a man looking for so-called paintings.

Of course the art they're looking at isn't real art, these are just prints on canvas not even limited in edition. Thousands of the same image are in circulation and many have them in their homes. I thought it would be interesting to paint those images as a way to elevate them to real art.

With Ikea I want to raise questions about consumerism and of course just make an image that's beautiful to look at too.

If you're interested in purchasing this painting just send me an email to info@gerardboersma.nl stating the title for more information and price.

The woman on my painting is enjoying In The Car by Roy Lichtenstein in a museum. In The Car is one of a series from the early 1960s in which Lichtenstein deals with the theme of romance.

Lichtenstein would paint his pop art works on a monumental scale, much enlarged from his original source material of comic-strip illustrations. His paintings present archetypal images of contemporary America, simultaneously glamorous, mundane, dramatic and impersonal.
