A total of 12 postcards.
Sunday the 12th of July is the opening of my solo exhibition 'Gloss Over' at Wunderkammer in Amsterdam. 'Gloss Over' can mean to 'make attractive' and even 'to cover up'. Or just something that leaves a glossy shine.
I am inspired by Japanese culture, the architecture and landscape. Though I suspect that Japanese culture and architecture aren't two separate matters. I would like to refer to the essay "In praise of shadows' by Junichiro Tanizaki.
At Wunderkammer I will show my latest linocut and woodcut prints. The square shape is derived from the latticework of the Japanese shojiscreen (the shojiscreen can be seen in my previous woodcut prints also at Wunderkammer). Furthermore there will be paper light-objects and paintings, one of which will be shown for the first time.
Looking out of the windows in Japan in 2014, the view of the mountains was 'disrupted' by electricity cables. This 'cutting through' space and dealing with it on a two dimensional plane has been my subject of study for quite a while.
The things that are around us everyday, but we hardly pay attention to. Things that you find ugly or simply necessary. I think that everything should be beautiful. And to be true, I don't find it hard to imagine.
I hope to see you at the opening!
