Community Artist Spotlight Space Exhibition
My artistic practice is process-oriented. The way I approach the material has much to do with my fascination with chance, chaos and randomness on the one hand, and repetition and patterns on the other. My drawings and paintings are the result of a constant battle between creation and demolition. My work is never completely defined, and in almost all of it, objects lose their shape. In my drawings, dark and black spots assume dominant roles, but it is not clear whether the other visible shapes and marks emerge from these or travel toward them.
In this exhibition I am presenting my latest work on paper. Here, repeated marks are grouping themselves in some kind of intelligent order, as they do in maps or graphic representations of data. These visual explorations are the result of my temporary working environment, an apartment where possibilities are limited. I can’t pour paint because there is not enough space, and I do not use oil paints because of the toxic fumes. In one small room I have just a desk, a small laptop, my books and some painting and drawing materials.Read more >
