Cityscapes – 2016.
A series of riso-printed cityscapes in which I research how I can built up a multi-layered ‘scape.
In 2016 I started to make a series of Cityscape drawings in which I explore layered drawing. The image is based upon reflexions of buildings in the windows of other buildings. On top of the base image of the mirroring go several other layers like a grit, city-lights and cell-structures. This is an ongoing series and the plan is to use these drawings as a starting point to make tapestries (at the TextileLab in Tilburg) in 2017 .
I dream of swimming – 2006.
In 2006 I participated in publishing ‘De Villa’. 5 artists formed ‘De Zuid-Hollandse stripclub’ and each produced a story in drawings all centered around a certain Villa. My contribution was an illustrated poem in English originally drawn in pencil. The book was printed (stencilled) by the Nijmeegse Universele/Knust.(www.extrapool.nl)
We held a book presentation at Quartair, Den Haag.
At the exhibition ‘Graphics & Beyond’ in de Pieter, Leiden (organised by the Grafische Werkplaats) I transformed a room into a small circus tent, complete with sawdust to present the romance between Miss Sophia Schultz and Major Mite.
The 3 presented works are out of the Freaks Icons series.
Fabric, string curtain, lights, sawdust and 3 silkscreen prints on fabric
A performance with 3 costume statues. Deep in the woods 3 very different energies are manifesting themselves. They seem to be closed off from each other; each in their own little world. But is this right? Don’t they belong together and form a whole? Based on the Chakra energies. videorealisation: André Bijma assistance & light: William Pennings performers: Ingetje Wielenga, Yanaika Holle, Ilse Versluijs music: Davide Bellotta. Presented at Ververs gallery, Amsterdam in 2011. Exhibition of drawings of the Freaks series, the silkscreen print (the back piece) ‘In the woods’ and 3 statue costumes. The performance took place during the opening. The videorealisation was done separately.
