The basic principle:
As soon as the artist is finished making an artwork it is on to the next step. The next step is the one where the artwork has to touch, inspire and/ or move other people to action. This usually is established by showing the artwork, for example a painting, at a gallery, showroom or museum or selling it, to be exposed at a by the new owner chosen spot. We have chosen a new way of handling things: -My art on the road- In this case the artwork is really going to make a trip.
How it works:
1. The artist is offering the artwork to a person of choice completely free of charge.
2. The recipient is free to hang the artwork on a location of choice. This could be something like a personal place for example a living room or bedroom or a spot more open to the public like a bar, hotel, place of business or even a museum. Just as long as the circumstances are in such a matter that the artwork will stay undamaged and in good condition at all times.
3. After 30 days the recipient ( temporary holder ) will pass the artwork on to a new recipient of his or her choice. And so on, and so on. Around the world….
