About The Artwork

"When you have reached the end of what you know, you are at the beginning of what you should say" Kahlil Gibran For me, it's not so much about the visual final image. My fascination is mainly in the curiosity of the origin of materials and their application. The questions that arise from this prompted me to look for new processing methods. The action is central to me. Time plays an important role in this. The process of figuring out which treatments the natural rubber had to undergo in order to achieve the appearance as we know it today has been a long journey of discovery. The consequence of this is that editing the material requires patience and persistence. What I depict by craft, the laborious editing by sewing together with embroidery stitches and / or connecting the rubber parts in another way.

I live and work in the east of the Netherlands on the German border on the Rhine. After my studies at the art academy in Den Bosch (specialization ceramics) I started working with porcelain. The fragile and the beauty of the porcelain particularly appealed to me. Over time, the material and its origins began to fascinate me more and more, that is why I started looking for what the essence of this material was for me. In addition, I developed a working method that is very similar to the way my father worked in his bakery. I started to translate the obtained shapes into other materials aluminum, polystyrene and rubber. Because rubber has different compositions, I started to study the origin and history of the material. Both materials are very valuable industrially. Porcelain used to be referred to as 'white gold' and rubber is 'black gold'. During the covid 19 lockdown I made porcelain works (landscapes) in exclusively white or black. And large hanging black rubber banner objects
