Sporen fascineren mij.

Aangevreten blad, gescheurd wegdek, spijkergaten in een wand, plekken van slijtage, het patroon van stoelpoten in een zachte vloer…..

Mijn werk bestaat uit stippen en lijnen, paardenhaar en stof, onzichtbaar verbonden tot transparante structuren, zwevend voor de wand.

Een tekening in de ruimte.

I am fascinated by dots, lines and contours, by their rythmical movements but also by the empty space they confine.
Instead of drawing on paper, I draw in space by using textile as a material.

I work with thread, fabric and horsehair, materials which are soft, light,
flexible and open to endless development.
The suppleness of textiles gives me the greatest possible freedom to achieve my goal: the discovery of new forms.

For me transparency is a prerequisite By leaving some space between the structure and the wall the object is freed from its background and interacts with the white wall. It becomes what I call a “Spatial Drawing”.
