I participate in this exhibition with 2 collages of drawings, combining portraits of Jane Morris with self-portraits and experiments with portraiture and ink in general. I have been cutting up some of my small ink drawings in order to frame them in a passe-partout with multiple shapes. Unintentional stories are told by juxtaposing 8 different drawings in one frame. It is a new challenge for me, a fresh perspective on drawing and I am happy my drawing environment doesn’t expose me to dangerous viruses so I can continue working. Wishing you safety and wisdom.

Commemorating Jane Morris’ birthday, as she was born on 19 October 1839, I superimposed a colour portrait of me, taken by Liselotte Fleur for the editorial about my work in Lone Wolf magazine, on top of a black and white photo of Jane Morris.
Doublechecking the date I suddenly realised there was another photograph of Jane Morris from the same series.
I might have always overlooked the image on the left as I was so smitten by the image on the left, in which Jane sits upright, full of self confience. Don’t you agree how this slight tilt of the head so drastically influences the way we perceive Jane?
Between 2009 and 2010, I experimented with creating a dummy glossy. I thought it was a perfect device for juxtaposing Jane’s lifestory with mine. Little did I know that in the upcoming summer issue of the international fashion/art magazine Lone Wolf our story actually will be told!
Photographs from my series ‘A Memory Palace of Her Own’ are exhibited at the William Morris Gallery from 11 January to 9 March 2014. The private view was held on 9 January and included a Q&A with the author Kirsty Walker who wrote this review.
By subtly pervading both my art and my subconscious, Jane Morris has built herself a Memory Palace. Gradually, a very personal relationship with her developed, through a series of remarkable dreams.
A limited edition CD was made especially for the private view of my exhibition ‘A Memory Palace of Her Own’ at the William Morris Gallery in 2014. I greatly enjoyed making this off-the-cuff recording with composer Jolle Roelofs, who is also responsible for the editing of the sound fragments and the improvisations on ukulele and piano.
In this fragment I will be meeting Jane and William Morris. There are no more limited edition CD’s for sale at the William Morris Gallery. If you are interested in a copy just let me know and I can send you one.
