About the work

Forget everything you need to get from A to B. Close your eyes and dream away to a place where you feel happy. Where things are as they should be. Where colors play with the sun. Where people say what they think and think what they say. A world far away. Close your eyes and travel every night. Alone or together. As long as you tell the stories when you wake up in the morning. You don't have to make them prettier. They're beautiful enough, because they're your stories.

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.
