Artist Statement
The drawings by Ante Timmermans (*1979 in Ninove, Belgium) are poetic reflections of an individual living in the city. In various sizes Ante Timmermans creates, with great precision, widely ramified urban structures. By using these fictitious urban arrangements, Timmermans maps outs invisible traces of human activity and emotions. The sensitively crafted architectural forms interweave themselves with patterns of human behaviour to take stock of a new urban environment.

By going from a small sketch book to a monumental format, Ante Timmermans evolves from the detailed to the panoramic view, from the sometimes caricature-like approach to a more critical representation of the landscape and the city. In magnifying today’s built up landscape to an enormous scale, he exhibits an ironic critique. Timmermans' urban landscapes are disproportionate constructions and ever increasing conglomerations of abstract and architectural forms, which overpower and replace the natural landscape. They are imaginary constructions where the absence of people is emphasised. Their presence is only indicated by the megalomaniacal architecture of the drawing, which replaces the unspoilt landscape with a purely urban structure.
