About the work

Dreamscapes are images I see in front of me when I close my eyes. They are landscapes from my memories, which most likely evoke certain memories in the viewer as well. With the series I want to show that reality doesn't exist, but that everyone forms their own image of what they see. Dreamscapes is the title. Images to dream away from. Each painting has a text and is signed on the side because with my name on the front it would always be just my memory.

About the artist

Ad van den Boom starts his career as a creative in advertising. His work has been awarded with several national and international prizes, but that's not what drives him. He wants to improve the world. So he creates Mappa Mondo for the Dutch Red Cross for example. In the mid-1990s, he is a teacher for several years at the HKU University of the arts in Utrecht. In all these years Van den Boom keeps on writing, painting and making sculptures. After the disaster with the MH-17 he creates a commemorative booklet in cooperation with the Singer Museum in Laren and the municipality of Hilversum. End 2015 he starts with a series about the refugee issue. And at the end of 2017 he had an exhibition with a series on leadership for a better world in the Town Hall of Hilversum. He regularly exhibits in the Netherlands and abroad at various galleries such as Studio 2000 Blaricum, Okker Art Amsterdam and Gallerie Noorderlicht Domburg, Gallery Mont Cervin Palace Zermatt Switzerland and sculpture garden Sous Terre Lithoijen.
