Exhibition @ Beginnings Gallery, NYC
“The series (originally made for an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Kampen in the Netherlands) consists of 109 unique sculptures varying in size between 5 and 14 inches. I began the creation process by drawing objects that appear frequently in my work, for example, plants, faces and pottery in their most simple form, narrowing each item down to the essence of their shape. The drawings were then cut out of wood and finalized with house paint and acrylics. Being inspired by Art Brut and Folk Art I decided to paint what are rather abstract forms in a naïve way, using about 24 colors and a uniform brush size.”
