Artist Statement

.


I am inspired by emptiness and space. Spatiality and infinite space must be present even in the smallest work. That is why I go to Ireland for several weeks every year

During the past two summers I have had the oppurtunity to works as an artist in residence at the "An Ceardlann na gCnoc"(An Clo) foundation in Donegal, Ireland
This is a residence in a very lonely place at the edge of western-Europe.

Since 2008/2009 i have been making a daily drawing in a Moleskine sketchbook. I wanted to break the theme of the 'daily drawing' away from the sketchbook in which they were made. In the workshop of An Clo I produced a series of lithographs based on these drawings.
The process off the daily drawing just went on as usual in Ireland. I could use these drwings to make a lithograph. The daily drwing became a daily "lithography". The lines that I printed on paper had a sober and graphic character.
The abstract shapes were directly inspired by the rocky and rugegd scenery.

During the second stay I noticed how certain things that I saw everyday kept recurring persistently in my drawings and lithographs. A large whale skull that served as a gateway to a house inspired me to make large monumental shapes in black and grey.

Through the process of making a daily drawing in a book I am aware that my hand is searching for new forms and lines. This search is not limited to drawing, but is also expressed through experiments with new and unusual materials for painting, such as sandpaper or newspaper.
Is what I am doing still painting? The past years I find myself in between painting and sculpting.

Space plays an important role: not only the space between my artworks, but also how a space is used when I present them as a large installation on the wall.
I want to pay attention to the detail of each individual work of art that was made separetly, without losing sight of the larger whole formed by all of them together.
