Title:Speransa
Media:Acrylic on canvas
Size:H: 70cm x W: 100cm

Speransa (Papiamento for Hope), presents a young lady reflecting on an unchangeable past while adopting a new perspective. Uprooting guilt and arrogance, she makes room for forgiveness and humility and exchanges love for hate, creating a bright and promising future. The artist donated this piece because she believes in a greater sense of universal responsibility. She is convinced that by taking ownership of this responsibility, we contribute to the foundation of a proper care of the environment.

Title:Oro
Media:Photo on Birch Wood
Size:H: 76cm x 51cm

In the neighborhood of San Fuego, close to the entrance of Aruba's Arikok National Park, stands an abandoned traditional cunucu house. Always on the lookout for hidden gems, the artist captured the vibrant colors, history and unique characteristics of the walls and printed it on birch wood. In 2016, Oro was exhibited at Art on Paper in New York and is now being donated to help relieve the Caribbean islands affected by the hurricanes.

Title:Underwaterworld glass panel
Media:Glass panel with cedarwood stand
Size:H: 40cm x W: 32cm (with stand)

This glass item is one of a series of glass panels that reflect the underwater world of Aruba. Each glass panel is unique and was made one at a time using different colors and shapes. All the shapes, such as the corals and jelly fishes, were either formed by using a torch or by using the technique of glass blowing. The artist takes pride in knowing that this piece will make its contribution to help rebuild St. Maarten.

Title:Aruban Landscape: Wariruri
Media:Mixed media on Arches paper
Size:H: 90 cm x W: 70 cm (with frame)

Renowned Aruban pioneer visual artist Stan Kuiperi depicts a highly personal interpretation of the Aruban landscape. This piece is inspired by the northern coastal landscape as well as the existing energy sources such as the wind, the sun and the ocean. These elements give rise to the natural environment symbolized by the resilient, tall Aruban cactus (cadushi largo), and to human life represented by the original native Caquetio petrograph designs, the first known cultural expressions in Aruba.

Title:Lost
Media:Acrilyc on canvas
Size:H: 115cm x W: 160cm

'LOST', is an image, as if taken from above, of a black space with nothing in it. When you try to look away from the dark color on the painting, your eyes automatically will be drawn in the black again. You try to see something else, but it looks and feels like the colors are not there. Similarly, when a disaster has hit you, you will be drawn in again and again with the feeling that nothing is left anymore. For some time you will be sucked up in a 'black space'. This until you realizes and starts to see, there is more out there.

Title:Tangerine Handmade Aruba – The Tile Collection
Media:Photo on canvas
Size:H: 35cm x W: 43cm

This handmade canvas bag by TANGERINE is a collaboration between craftsman Ashlin Ahlip and photographer Cado de Lannoy. The photograph featured on the bag is entitled 'Strepi Cora', (Papiamento for Red Line) and shows a detail on a wall in an abandoned house in San Nicolas, Aruba's cultural and heritage city. The result is a unique combination of traditional nautical style and the colors of Aruba's history.

Media:Pallet wood and branches

This sculpture is a unification of two old chairs and two cabinet doors finished with a touch of driftwood and old branches. The artist assembled this piece in one morning and saw the individual items transform into one perfect union.

Title:7 Chakras
Media:Acryclic and glow in the dark paint on canvas
Size:H: 75cm x W: 60cm

I am Divine, I am Connected, I am Expressive, I am Loved, I am Strong, I am Creative, I am Safe

This mantra will lift you up if you are feeling down and make you feel better if you are feeling good. With this painting, the artist urges the viewers to imagine what their biggest wish would be if they were to suddenly lose their homes and jobs while not being able to provide for their starving family. With her own wish in mind, the artist donated this painting.

Title:Zenith
Media:Acrylics and mixed media on canvas
Size:H: 52cm x W: 52cm (with frame)

An ancient but simplistic handmade silkscreen print of the world with all her main focus points boasts the center of the canvas. The Zenith is the highest point on the celestial sphere and marks the highest point that a body can reach. The text on the right reveals a message from the Garden of Eden on the beginning of the world.
