Documentation of a show I made for the exhibition spaces of the Jan van Eyck Academy, Maastricht (NL). It brings together a body of works using a wide range of materials and techniques, such as drawing, etching, ceramics, animation and found stuff. The animation More than meets the eye can be watched on Vimeo. In the exhibition it was played as a loop, on a monitor.
In the installation We reach the same end by discrepant means I brought together a number new works which I made over the last few months. Taking the image of a victorian drawing class as a starting point, the installation brings together works which use different ways of mark making to find a moment in which drawings becomes objects. Using folds and grids the work I intended to explore artistic agency within an everyday conception of creative activity.
I made a small publication consisting of a text I have written about mark making and a found text about perspective, which I combined with images and drawings. The title is ‘So with pictures seen from too far or too near there is but one exact point which is the true place wherefrom to look at them: the rest are too near, too far, too high, too low’.
Installation with wall drawing, photograph and screen tone, mounted on a sheet of glass.
For the exhibition Charming The Snake of Reason at Enjoy Public Art Gallery in Wellington (NZ) I made a new work called Lines Intersecting on a Circular Plane. It consists of a wall drawing and a small work on paper. This small work is a paper silhouette mounted on a piece of hand made paper.
The Smooth and the Striated is an exhibition which took place from July 2nd until August 1st 2010 at Huize Frankendael and Nieuw Dakota.
I’ll be showing some recent works at the Jan van Eyck Academie open studios, taking place Friday 21 February from 15:00 – 19:00 and Saturday 22 February from 10:00 – 17:00.

For a commission to produce a work for a private home in the city of Utrecht I developed a tile tableau which has now been installed. An interesting challenge was that it had to be something for a blind wall in the garden – hence the tiles – but it also proved to be a really great opportunity to experiment with unusual materials and techniques.
