At the group exhibition ‘Verse Aanwas’ my pencil drawings, inspired by Jane Morris her hair, are juxtaposed by portraits in stone by Martie van der Loo.
On show are paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures and prints made by 13 different artists. From 28 July till 18 August 2019 at Pulchri, Den Haag.
Pulchri magazine published an article about the exhibition (in Dutch). Find a similar fragment in English below, originally written by Klaske Havik in November 2018.
“The pencil drawings of Jane’s hairstyles have been transformed into leading a life of their own in these new drawings. They reach into the depths of drawing itself. The portraits still show traces of thoughts and stories. In the detail of skin and hair lie labyrinthine landscapes in which the viewer can get lost. The muse gradually disappears from the image and leaves room for other, new stories. New, but anchored in the search for the doppelganger, to the self, to the other. They invite you to look the detail and think about what you can read in it.”
