Art Description

Printmaking: Screenprinting on Canvas.

This work is actually created in assignment for a theme night called ‘Night Shift’. The designated location was a hotel in Zwolle. My theme automatically shifted towards the idea of desolate hotel nights (featuring the late Cohen and his former lover Marianne Faithfull). In these hotel nights most people are sound a sleep, some wandering, drinking or enjoying a romance, few killing time in utterly despair, others at work. The nightshift. This image is a mix between the rock statuses of a Chelsea Hotel (NY) and the clean, functional and impersonal traffic space of hotels everywhere. Hotels are places to escape from or to disappear to. The elevator doors, some half open, some closed, representing hotel rooms and what secrets they keep. The laundry bags representing the less fancy part of hotel life, literally dirty laundry waiting to be washed white...but who’s dirty laundry are we looking at?
This theme night is cancelled but the work was already done. The artwork is never collected. So after a period of one and a half year I decided that I wont keep this work from you. It fits perfectly in my series of work.
