I started the new year at the house of a dear friend in Gochar, Almeria in the south of Spain, an area I visit regularly. I sense a strong connection between these photos and my drawings.

While developing a new work, there comes a moment when the sense of time dissappears, and the need to perfect it and solve the issues within it become feverish. Within this concentration, the work starts to talk to you and forces its own, often unpredictable choices and solutions.You could describe that as an intimate relationship. This is something that I can also experience in direct confrontation with the work of other artists. The concept of language extends beyond text and words. The title of my latest solo show: 'I Think We're Alone Now' at Off Hook Groningen NL refers to that moment. (and yes, it 's also the title of a song and a movie..) Off Hook is a new artist run space, founded by Lydia Wierenga. You can visit the exhibition until January 21.

Digital drawing experiments.









 


Silkscreen print and cotton on cotton, 180x120 cm. 


 


Some of the prints I made during my residency @ AGALAB, studio for experimental printmaking. I look forward to incorporating this material in a new series of drawings.





 


Together with recent graduates Larissa Schepers, Arthur Dufoor and Krijn Kroes I organised a group exhibition resulting from the Apprentice Master trajectory from Kunstpodium T, edition 2020-2021.
It was fun working with them!

I regularly use a drawing program and drawing tablet in order to make decisions within my work.  Recently, this way of working has also led to autonomous drawings, as well as to visual media that I print and process in my textiles.
