The works depict how patterns, structures and light slide over each other and yield new compositions with endless colour shades. Details where color and light on the skin of things is characteristic for the translation of reality.

TECHNIQUE

The 'beauty of the everyday' is an important factor. Zooming in on patterns, structures and light in the (urban)landscape. The works depict how these impressions slide over each other and yield new compositions with endless colour shades. Details where color and light on the skin of things is characteristic for the translation of reality. This is used intuitively, but especially investigative. 

The reliefs are made with yarn and paper/board/photo that portray the tranquil landscape of Holland. The subtle use of colours and detailed texture plays a refined game with the light and determine the character of the work.

’For me, working with these materials is a changing process: from reality to geometric pro- portions. And vice versa, from the geometrical planes to the reality, and again from reality. A process in which color plays an important role. The seemingly flat surface changes into a relief with several dimensions. The yarn picks up details, directs the eye and adds a third dimension’. 

For example, the ‘Reflections’ and ‘Moving’ series are inspired by how the water and the air influence each other and form an endless wealth of color shades. The series 'Vertical City' and 'Twilight' are rooted in the strict rhythm of (office) facades where the idea of space or foreground/background is not defined by shape or color, but only by the texture. The 'Sea Landscapes' are made with acrylic painted paper in many shades of green and yarn that portray  water landscape in the Caribbean.
