About The Artwork

------------------------- This drawing of a nude dancer is based on an antique reference photograph, taken somewhere early last century. It started out as a quick practice sketch on a large sheet of pretty ordinary cartridge paper, and turned into something that made me wish I had done it on more expensive paper. If you keep it away from moisture and out of direct sunlight, it should age gracefully and last at least a lifetime.

I'm an insatiable omnivore when it comes to information and influences in general. My creative output (sculptures in stone, metal, wood; paintings, murals, digital photo manipulations) has always been equally divers in form. Up until recently, I have not yet been able to force myself to operate otherwise. During the past decade, my creative process has become a lot more stable, and recently I've been focussing on one mode of expression. DRAWINGS About a year ago, I started drawing again, after not having done that for about a decade, and not this seriously since my childhood/adolescence, when i hardly did anything else. The last 1.5 years, I have been catching up on the technical side. After many material experiments (what can you do with what paper/canvas/kinds of charcoal, pastel), I am now more and more finding my subject and style in these mediums. Every drawing you see here now, is another step in my journey of experimentation. ------------------------------------------- In the decade preceding my current adventure as a late-blooming draftsman, my medium has been a Mac with Wacom tablet and much maligned but truly magnificent Photoshop. Plus a high end printer (commercial art printer for large formats) to get physical output. The endless array of possibilities one has while digitally manipulating pixels, combined with an intuitive approach, necessitates putting in place some 'stimulating restrictions'. Every work emerged from within one of the following thematic series: PHOTOMONTAGES (COLOR) "ELEMENTS", a series of montages that feature earth, water, fire, air and 'ether'. Seeing as these elements manifest in various ways/forms, representations of them in my work can either have a psychological meaning, or one that relates to a physical reality. (subseries: PODS, 12 variations on 1 theme) "BEINGS", a series of works that deal with the various ways consciousness can manifest in our world, and some of what it does after it realises that it does. "HYBRIDS" (or 'Hybrid Beings'), a series about the animal tail of our subconscious. Beings with a dual physical nature, feature in staged portrait scenes, reflecting or commenting on what on Earth humanity is up to now.
