The style of collecting at De HEEREN van TUIL

De Heeren van Tuil has a long history. The farmhouse ‘De Lindenhof’ was built in 1720 and is a listed building. It is said that in 1810 Louis Napoleon visited and stayed in what was then a gentlemen’s lodge. The family history of De Heeren is all around you. Collecting antiques and modern art is a family tradition, linking the past with the present.

The style of collecting!

Original artworks decorate the rooms, be they antique heirlooms or modern graphics in an eclectic mix of styles. Be inspired by the art in your room and the lounge or even by the pieces in the little shop behind the stables. At certain times you will also have the chance to buy unique works of art from artists who from time to time will be exhibiting at De Heeren van Tuil.

Special introductions and contacts

Do you wish to link your visit with the opportunity to add to your own collections? De Heeren know where to find many of the items you may be seeking and would be very happy to share their contacts with you. You may visit an artist’s home or be given the address of a local antiques dealer. The first is actually a few steps from your room: Marjolein Wagensveld has her studio ‘Strand en Kaarslicht‘ at De Heeren van Tuil where she makes unique and very decorative wind lights in wax which incorporate natural materials some of which she collects from our very own gardens.

Exposition Ditty van der Elst

In the Bommelerwaard along the Waal is my home and workspace. Strolling through the floodplains and along the river I find material and inspiration.

Floating wood, shells and stones carried along by the river form the starting point for the objects I make. In the beautifully shaped pieces of driftwood I see animal figures that I work out further in the dry felt technique. Raw sheep’s wool is processed into three-dimensional felt with the aid of felt needles.

For a number of years now I have been working in this way. The combination of wood and felt is not so common but for me it is very logical that they are materials that are available in my environment. I collect the driftwood during a walk with the dog along the river De Waal. The wool comes from sheep grazing along the old city walls. Wood and felt are beautiful to form a whole, they are materials that complement each other but also strengthen. The natural forms of the wood determine both the final representation of the image and the working method. This method is unique for each image and forms a kind of quest every time, and sometimes even a struggle to come to the image I have in mind. But it is precisely this that makes these natural materials and working methods captivate me.

Exposition Yonda Poslavsky

I have been working artistically for several years now. Especially the making of collages is fantastic to do. I make my collages from found photos in magazines, books etc. from which I cut, cut and paste. I scan the piece, but do not digitally edit it. I have the scan printed, preferably on aluminium.

I get my inspiration mainly from my own emotional experience, events in my environment and occasionally from what happens in the world. In my collages I try to tell a story that the viewer can colour in his own way.
