part of FLOW – 6 artist books by as many artists on the theme Water & Soil, all gathered in a box. The project was initiated by Colombian artist Andrès Fresneda.

These books are my free associations on the theme water and soil; expressing ambiance, materiality and scenery in an abstract way. Ink and water were let to freely flow to create the originals for half of thespreads. Painterly screen printing – with decisions taken in the very moment of printing – constitutes the other half of the flow in the books.

Drawing a line of thoughts

size: 2,5 x 20 cm numbered edition of 28

comes with 2 alternative titles:

An attempt to with words mirror what it is to draw; trying to to express something and evoke a feeling in the spectator/reader. Here the layout, the turning of the pages, different papers and words slowly being erased are used in the endeavour.

“There is absolutely no chance for a word ever to express anything. As soon as we start putting our thought into words and sentences everything goes wrong”
Marcel Duchamp

Anyway “j’ai fais un essai – et le voilà”

… like there is no tomorrow …
Artist Book, 2019
digital print
28 x 20 cm
42 pages
numbered edition of 30

A collection of charcoal drawings mended with tape. The repetition in the acts and the variations in the repititions create a motion, like in a film. This book is also about the physical, the frail, desperation and the non lasting.

4 variations – the End of Days

screen printed monotypes
22 x 32 cm
16 pages/book

As an addition to the monumental book The End of Days four small books were created developing the theme in different directions. In these books there is a greater focus on the material experiences, which becomes so much more intimate when in smaller formats.

Time Flies
Unique Artist Book, 2019
screen printed monotype
28 pages
size: 28 x 28 cm

The fly maggots are growing in number throughout the book. Thanks to the semi transparent paper layers on layers of maggots are experienced. An important part of the reading is made up by the feeling of touching the frail paper when leafing through the book and of the special sound when turning the pages.
