Decorate your wall with the image you love by choosing this really cool artwork From the Sideline Night in our category ‘Courtesy to Hockney’. By multimedia visual artist Melle van Gemerden.
Van Gemerden: “The ‘Courstesy To Hockney’-series was the colorful escape, whilst undergoing one of the world’s most strict first lockdown responses, in Andalusia, Spain; as the global community crashed into the first Covid-19 wave. Lysergic and hopeful horizons were a second and more hopeful response to the newly acquainted crisis. In the suspension of time, when the fantastical Andalusian sun rises and sunsets seemed to merge; finally, an opportunity found to pay tribute to David Hockney and his vibrant iPad paintings. They too once served me as a beacon of light and inspiration. They ignited me to express my tennis years in a way that both fit the vibrancy I wanted to portray with my life dynamic – transitioning from being in the courts to painting them.”

About the artist: FROM THE ART OF TENNIS TO TENNIS ART
Melle van Gemerden (Amsterdam, 1979) is a multimedia visual artist. His artistic development is influenced by the Dutch architectural style of De Stijl and Berlage, present in his formative years. Also by the essential vibrancy of the Color Field movement, the energy and audacity to seek new mediums from the Pop Art movement and the minimalist style of the Modern Abstract movement in sculpture.
Van Gemerden’s artistic work is about the suspension of time, sitting on the sidelines. Not as a mere spectator, but as an active part of the game and anticipating for action. Former ATP tennis professional Van Gemerden has toured globally for two decades, with appearances in a Davis Cup and all Grand Slams.
In his artworks Van Gemerden shows an on-going memoir of the geometric landscape – the tennis court – as a huge part of his daily routine. Since 2018, he expresses the subtle cultural, atmospheric
‘Each tennis court landscape appears to be the same; but each is unique in itself.’
Currently Van Gemerden is expanding his practice on to other mediums. His artworks are part of various private art collections around the globe and he accepts commissions to frame the collector’s most cherished tennis court.
