This art work is a combination of painting and photography. It is framed in a handmade museum quality frame made of Mansonia (walnut) wood.
Characteristic of Faassen’s works is his continued innovative utilization of material, techniques and disciplines. At present in addition to painting and graphic art, Faassen devotes much of his time to the medium of photography. It is in his photographic work that we once again see the 17th century Leiden painters who inspired him. His distinctive works depict the classic 17th century themes such as cityscapes, vanitas paintings and flower arrangements.
