Recently, I have been looking a lot at my own past work , partly to redefine what I am doing now, and sometimes to revise and re-execute earlier works. I like to stay in touch with everything I have developed/done/made and see this as 1 body of work.

I made these larger-than-life commissioned sculptures around 2004.

'HISS FLUTTER SQUEAL', 18/19-06-2022 A solo presentation and overview of the works I developed in the past half year. The exhibition was on display at 2 locations. Thank you all for coming!!













The title is taken from a text fragment written by Pieter Dobbelsteen:'Romantic an boundless, sometimes dark but always full of zest, Wanders' abstract black and white works touch upon a fundamental exoerience -a living experience. One of stacking, hissing, fluttering, squealing. Rattling, swimming, drowning, burning. Cutting, chopping, blossoming, erasing, binding and bulging. Ultimately the meaning is in the making'

Mid december 2021 I started a series of large works that consisted only of white lines on a black surface. I was in a period where many things went wrong, and I needed slow, laborious and compelling work. I generally don't see my work as therapeutic, but certainly as part of my daily life and thus it reflects, consciously or unconsciously, where I am.

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.

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.
