Abstract

A series of representations and technique exercises produced to expand competence. Each image has the role of simplifying internal jumble and bringing personal logic to existence on paper. Chaperones for meditative states of creation these exercises double up as pacifiers for inner conflicts and materialise into personal resolutions.

 

This three-part sequence of infinite strands was drawn using ink and markers, over a period of 32 hours of delayed travel. In a stressful environment, the compositions where used as a meditative practice to keep calm despite the circumstances as well as a reminder that sometimes life is out of one's hands. After reaching the initial destinations, these processions remain as a remembrance that our minds can add or remove weight to the events of our lives.

A series of eight geometric colour compositions inspired by semi-precious stones. Each composition appears as a carefully put together puzzle of pigments, each edge straight and contrasted with the next fraction. There is a playful dynamic created by various size fragments, and one can easily imagine a continuous everlasting dance outside the white edges of the arrangement. Whenever together or individually, despite the gleaming configuration of triangles, each piece hopes to bring and centre the same ideas on endurance, stability and permanence as the stones they emulate. As gems represent the ability to be grounded and connected with the earth, so are these illustrations presenting as strong, versatile and easily accessible.

A series of three images, drawn on a 4-hour flight, more as a challenge of creation in a confined space: the middle chair in a row of three. An exercise in colour, light and criss-cross with a heavy influence of early works by Jeroen Erosie and sketchbook work by Raymond Lemstra. The protoplasm invites views to a moment of calm and attention to detail.

Formerly a composite part of a project for British pop-rock band Chasing Deer, this colourful arrangement was made freehand with markers and white paint. Loosely based on a sketch made for the creative brief, the final version of this illustration is black and white and works as a background for a deer. This was the bands' choice for the design for their album cover Moving On.
