Our frames are carefully selected and stand out in material quality as wel as design. They’re made of an aluminium profile which guarantees a lightweight yet sturdy base. We offer them in 17 different styles including metallics and woods and even some bright colors. We use acrylic glass which is better, brighter and lighter than ordinary glass and less likely to damage during transportation.


The width of the standard frame is 5 mm (~ 0.2 inch) and the depth is 22 mm (~ 0.9 inch). All frames are also available in a luxury version which come with thicker glass and an additional insert to elevate the artwork, adding an extra dimension to it’s display. The width of a luxury frame is 8 mm (~ 0.3 inch) and the depth is 35 mm (~ 1.4 inch).

All frames are custom made to fit the art print by our professional framer and come with a ready-to-hang suspension system.

Inspiration
The artist here represents God as Lord Shiva. The statue is not completely visible to the eye, which symbolizes the inability to view God as a total. The Sadhu (man dedicated to God) who lies at the feet of Shiva came to honor God and to recognize as creator and destroyer of all creations, but eventually fell asleep. He is now no longer aware of the Divine presence. The sadhu now dreams the bondage of body and mind, without the awareness of the infinite presence from which that illusion of bondage arose. In the Hindi scriptures the creation is seen as Maya, Leela or dream. The only unchanging truth or reality is God. Awakening from that dream, this is called realization of the unchanging truth. In the background you can see the river Ganges in the background, which according to the scriptures flows from the head of Shiva.

Work method
This time-consuming technique originally comes from the Renaissance period. Leonardo da Vinci and Botticelli made use of this painting method. Recent artists adapted it somewhat, in accordance with today's consumables, but the principle has remained the same.The shape is determined by the play of light and dark, and with this fact I start on a gray pre-worked panel, the form with Omber natural and Titanium white to put down. In the mid-tone the gray background still continues to do its job. After this underpainting has cured sufficiently, the colors are transparent (glaze) to semi-transparent. The light is increased in layers This is often repeated several times, creating a mystical depth in the painting and starting to live strongly with the right lighting. After all, the light is reflected back in certain gradations through the layer of color via the underlayer, which gives an extra dimension to the work.

Paul Jaarsma

After traveling over 35.000 km through the whole continent of Africa Jaarsma realized that respect forms the backbone for people who live in harmony with nature. Nature shows that in all its beauty. It is his wish to give shape to this awareness and transfer it to others.

'The images which flow from his brushes are timeless in essence, but in terms of image, they may be history soon.'
