Back on the mainland...

After spending more then a month on the Isle of Mull and the Isle of Iona, we are back on the mainland. It feels nice to be in different surroundings again with forests, creeks, mountains and an actual signal on our phones (instead of having to read all the time: “no signal”).

Recent work

Part of the Mapping series. Recently made in Scotland on the Isle of Mull. And again: without the use of photoshop or any forms of postproduction. Detail

No stores around.

From an early age on my father taught me a lot of basic skills. One of them: baking your own bread. As far as I can remember I see my tiny hands covered in flour with chunks of butter stick to it, trying hard to knead and shape my own little bread. At an older age, I’d come back from school finding our house surrounded with the smell of freshly baked bread. A hot loaf of bread with farm butter and brown sugar was the reward of cycling 25 kilometers a day. Nowadays I am passing my fathers skills on to his granddaughters, and just like me they love every part of it, from kneading the dough ‘till the first bite of a crispy warm loaf with butter and sugar. Quite handy knowing these skills while

Just a perfect day

July the 11th 2018, a day to remember. It started with a great breakfast served at a local restaurant close to the sea, we met sailors and talked about the sailing conditions and opportunities in Scotland, we visited a food-festival where we ate locally caught smoked salmon, we went on the road and while singing songs the landscape shifted from beautiful to exceptionally beautiful, we had pies and cakes during a small break, we travelled further and met Jackie and Elisabeth 2 retired sisters living on Mull, we found a camp spot with a view beyond comparison, we made a beautiful hike, ate smoked trout for dinner, then the girls went to bed and we ended up having a campfire drinking a good bot

Summer in Scotland

Last time a summer in Scotland was this good, was back in 1976. No rain for over 6 weeks now... No midgets either. We prepared for rain and itching body parts, so this is far beyond our expectations. We are enjoying every bit of it and so are our white woolen friends down at the beach...

Climb that hill!

If you’d ever wanted to loose your mobile phone and then be in desperate need of calling somebody, this would be the place! If you’d ever got shipwrecked, but still in desperate need of posting a letter to a dearest friend, this would the place! Climb that hill! shipwrecked or not, and post those precious carefully picked words and delicately made drawings to your beloved ones! Make the call! (Even with your mobile phone burning in your back pocket.) Just do it for the sake of the view and the incredible picked spot of these two beauty of red boxes!

The continuation of our "Mapping"-series. Made in Scotland. (Detail)

When you are fast asleep...

Nature in all it’s diversity is what inspires us... We are currently working on rocks and rock formations. And when everybody is fast asleep we go out to make our projections of light in the landscape. Stay tuned for some of the results, they are stunning I can tell you that!

Girls just wanna have fun

What else do they need? Water, sand, rocks and each other (and ok, dad's SUP-board). A whole afternoon of fun guaranteed!

Fuji Film Magazine (Dutch only).

Onlangs verscheen er in het Fujifilm Magazine een mooi interview over ons werk en ons leven: Zuijderwijk/Vergouwe ‘We zijn overtuigd dat we anders om moeten gaan met de natuur’ Het kunstenaarsechtpaar Maaike Vergouwe en Daan Zuijderwijk kent elkaar al sinds ze beiden een opleiding volgden op de AKV|St.Joost. Rond 2006 begonnen ze samen te werken. We spraken met Daan over het werk wat ze maken, de relatie tussen mens en natuur, het ambassadeurschap voor Fujifilm en meer. Een echtpaar dat samenwerkt aan kunst, zie je niet heel vaak. Niet vreemd, want iedereen, en zeker kunstenaars, hebben een zekere opvatting over hoe te werk te gaan. Toch komt de samenwerking tussen Maaike en Daan heel natuur

The Beast...

Last week someone called our mobile home "The Beast". I guess it just depends from which perspective you look at it. For us, it is our tiny house on wheels, our home, the only one we have. It hosts 2 adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs. Pretty tiny I would say, for such a big beast of a family!
