  11. ‘Untitled’ (Mögligkeitsraum) Graphite on paper 187cm x 150cm. 2018

    Movement and stillness. Drawing in three layers from a projected photograph taken during a walk in northern Europe. The upper part shows the first layer where the image was replaced every 5 cm(indicated by black marks; see detail). As a result from these replacements most significant and recognizable elements of the landscape are wiped out. All the information of the forest is there but fragmented in a repetitious pattern like field. The lower part of the drawing has two extra layers, drawn bottom up, where the image wasn’t replaced anymore. The drawing is drawn at both sides which on the one hand emphasizes it’s immateriality, the paper is in between the drawing, on the other hand this causes the paper to bulb which makes the paper material more visible.

  17. ‘Creation is also about destruction, when you draw a line on an empty sheet the emptiness is gone.’ After two layers the whole drawing was erased, then three new layers. The middle part is completely black and the paper pushed to its limits. Each new layer destroys somehow the layer before. At the edges of the drawing there’s a lot of information about previous stages. I like the ambiguousness of the middle part which is at the same time suggesting depth as a black hole and blocking this depth by reflecting the light, thus showing the drawing as an ordinary object.

    This drawing was started a few years ago and was never finished nor exhibited. It travels with me. The two images show how the light reflects the bulbed paper differently.

  22. ‘Untitled’ (Circles #2, #1) Graphite on paper. 150 x 120 cm. each. 2018

    Based on the projection of a landscape. This drawing (diptych) was made over a period of almost a year. It was started in my studio and finished in the living room, drawn up to five layers. First the sheet of paper was enlarged at the bottom, then this part was removed again. The remaining part was cut in two and rearranged.  For me this drawing represents a way of non linear working; there’s no clear destination, it travels with me, expanding and contracting, absorbing time and graphite. I guess it was finished when it returned after an exhibition. 

    For the documentation of this work I experimented with a spotlight, clearly showing the reflection in the graphite leaving the other parts in the half-light of the room.
