the juxtapositions (2022)

rearrange the letters from ‘cell’ to ‘chill’ and a new characteristic of the letter ‘c’ appears. these drawings are such rearrangements: each time they unlock a different characteristic of the parts. the whole of knowledge is greater than the sum of the parts.

choice of context and choice of material, coloured pencil or silverpoint steer the interpretation. knowing this is just as important as the conveyed information itself.

at the basis of each drawing is astonishment at current themes such as displacement, inequality, the human as animal in a geographical and/or historical context. each current theme consists of new images of historical or timeless counterparts. in this way it gains weight or is put into perspective.
