These paintings are images of Drenthe around 1900 which I found in books and old postcards. In my art I connect the robust local dialect with the images by weaving them together and letting them interact.
I make a lot of gouaches, which are pre-studies for the silkscreen mono-prints. I use the colors of the landscape that surrounds me, which I display more intense. After making a selection of the gouaches, I can start with the silkscreen mono-printing.
Before I start painting on the silkscreen, I put my pre-study underneath it, so that I have a guideline to paint. The painting itself has to happen fast because of the fast drying of the acrylic paint. These acrylics are being mixed with a medium that slows down the drying-time.
I mainly print on different sorts of paper. After having finished a print, I have to clean the entire silkscreen before I can make a new monoprint.
If you are interested in purchasing my work, or have any questions regarding them you can contact me via my facebook.
