ARTIST STATEMENT
Drawing — with graphite pencil on the raw canvas — is a very direct and intuitive process.
Through intensive viewing and reflecting, stroke by stroke, a new image develops. The combination of the “colour” range of the graphite pencil and the natural colour of the canvas takes me to large-scale works on the boundaries of drawing and painting. I am inspired by “mistakes” that slip into the picture and disturb the beautiful impression.
