The drawings and watercolours of Sander Wiersma often have human vulnerability and sexuality as their central theme. Photo’s from internet and magazines are frequently used as a starting point. By subtracting the photographs from their original context and by editing them Wiersma creates some distance from his subject. He knows how to create his own world of vulnerable figures, that will sometimes cause alarm, but more often are there to be seen and admired by the viewer.
