Artist Statement

 Like everybody, I made drawings before I knew about art , before I new how to write, before I knew how to speak. That is  something that should always be kept in mind.

 I will limit myself within a certain subject, but that subject is not the theme. By this  I mean ; When I draw hands; I am not interested in sign-language or palm reading. The hand will have something else to do.

I want to use drawing in more ways than just on paper.
There's nothing wrong with drawings on paper.

By using loops for my animation-videos the repetitional aspect of the piece can replaces the narrative aspect of moving images.

 I bring drawing, animation, film, video and wallpaper together  around a central theme and put  drawing in a wider perceptive by initiating all kinds of projects. Such as my ongoing book project Drawings on....for J&L Books.

By using wallpaper and it's repetitional aspect I can intensify the experience of a small drawing.

The power of animation is that the unbelievable and impossible is normal.
Someone falls from a building and just walks away.
Violence in animation doesn't hurt.

The speed that drawing can have, get' a different meaning when you get to see 15 drawings a second.

In my opinion drawing is  universal in the sense that everybody  has made a drawing at one time. While not everybody has made a photograph, painting or film.


Drawing is cheap.
