Margalef (SP) oct. ’15 was as inspiring as can be. With a group of 3 we converted 2 spaces and a corridor into 3 installations. On my walls in the basement I showed some drawings, although unfinished , they visualize the rolling mountains around, the light basement interieur, the rope and textile connections.
After the work we made many mountain visits and I decided to walk a part of the camino Aragón, starting from Huesca via Lleida. When I came up to Pamplona I went opposite the camino towards the border of France. (No pictures attached).
CHELVA (SP) ’14 (near Valencia); Morish, christian and jewish in this Chelva time that is gone, at this house here is a border (sort of 3 culturepoint).
Morish lived on the hillside till 1608 on the lower part here. Here was the jewish sector and on the square and to the east is now the town andcatholic. Probebly this house is build to the townwall, also as a tower. De barrios are called Azogue, Arrabal and Benicacira. I walk from his land with olivetrees and amandel back. Black olives on greygreen trees on red soil. Artishocks everywhere and cactus and sedums and rosemarin. So I made this in my next drawing. With a bunch of colorpencils together I started a roman window type going in that vegetal landscape. I assembled a kind of pool, with brow tiles and yellow tape and started a third drawing. It has wings on the horizon in the red sky.
EGMOND AAN ZEE (NL); Busy with the see and its changing skies, end of the year atelier at pavilion ‘de zeester’ My work is not very colorclear, but yes about the greytones. A big drawing is more or less a bit of scratching with the sound of the pencels (sounds like the branding?) and pastel on paper. After that I draw with colorpencels to correct the ‘mistakes’ I made; like a line that just ends or turns or those empty lines; when grafit doesnot write and notes. Used a gum today to get the beachy and the waves of the clouds more. After http//:camac-calm-and- (see other blog) I work again in rectangles. This because of the horizon (the see) is bold, from left to right, behind a balustrade on a dune. The frame is also not square. So in short; despite the emptyness of the beach and the water there is enough in this drawing what expresses the desorientation. Egmond ’13

My sculpture work :
I like materials to re-use materials and to put them in another context. I make use of what comes on my way. In my search I get ïnspired often by the contrast between logic, language, technic and nature in all its chaos and organisedness. The changings in technologics, natural enviroment ask for an artistic comment.
I find in my inspiration by traveling,meetings, installations, sculptures and drawings which I make and exhibite. All the contrasting definitions of landscapes and objects.
