REVIEW

COLOR | FORM | MATTER /

To me, as a printmaker, all graphic techniques are means to draw or paint. Basic ideas are shaped while printing. I continuously interfere in process itself, which results in a mostly unique print. I like mixing techniques, preferably silkscreen and woodcut. It enables me to print on a variety of materials such as cardboard, wood, glass, metal, cloth, etc. It is my way of exploring matter.

Colours, on the other hand, I do not mix as ink. By printing several thin layers of constituent colours on top of one another, I build the final colour I have in mind.
My plastic language is constructive and refers to architecture, typography, bookprinting and the sea. I strive to blur the line between the ‘free’ and the
‘functional’.
