I draw small shapes and lines using pencil on paper. Tiny graphic elements that I link together. By repeating the same shapes frequently, variations arise in a fine-meshed structure. While drawing, I alternate graphic elements. This happens spontaneously as a kind of automatic writing. It is an improvisation without losing control, a process that I consciously seek out.
The drawings are reminiscent of something between an organically grown whole and a reflection of a scientifically meticulously recorded process. A scale indication is missing, which means that the drawings can cover both the largest and the smallest, and all in between. They are a mixture of design and natural growth, balancing between a recognizable and an unrecognizable form, but the drawings essentially transcend form and content.
These days, in which we have more and more insight into the smallest and the largest, science and technology are merging with nature more and more. This is something that fascinates me, but I do find it slightly disturbing as well. In the background these feelings play a part in the creation of those associative drawings. But exactly how they influence the drawings, I do not know. And I like that, because what is paramount, is the process: I bring myself into a state of concentration in which the drawings make themselves, without premeditation. This way, also the viewer can view the drawings on different levels and from different angles with an open mind
