The Underworld silkscreen prints series is printed on fabrics in layers using natural inks. At the start of the Covid pandemic in 2019 I have started to experiment with making my own natural inks, mainly from plants. The layers create depth and texture which are enhanced by embroidery. Moving shadows & dancing light spots.
‘scapes – Ongoing from 2013.
During my a-i-r in Sydney in 2013 I started to develop the idea for a big project I am calling ‘SCAPES. Slowly working my way towards realising this project I am making smaller ‘scapes in different techniques. It is to be a large scale silkscreen print that will form the base for a cooperation project with various artists of various fields. An all-round art-experience.
‘scapes can be: landscapes, cityscapes, soundscapes, lightscapes…
These ‘scapes are realised in textiles.
Analog Textiel Festival – 2014.
For the Analog Textile Testival in 2014 (organised and hosted by the Grafische Werkplaats) I made a series of try-out-‘scapes with newly learned silkscreen techniques. Learned them from Daniel Henry during a workshop at this festival. The ‘scapes try-outs were presented during an exhibition at Hoop warenhuis, Den Haag.
Also presented at the Mr Weiss exhibition in 2015 at Binckhorstlaan 215, Den Haag.
Silkscreen prints on fabrics, mostly 45 x 45 cm.
The presentation form can vary.
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 .
