From the Collagist


In the past 20 years I have been active as a mail artist. I work in different kinds of disciplines such as photography, collage, carving, drawing and mixed media. I have spearheaded open calls and taken part in hundreds of mailart projects worldwide and co-curated the exhibition What about Croxhapox? together with mail artists Ryosuke Cohen and Anna Banana at the CROXHAPOX.


Lately, I am focusing on collage making, trying to express myself through working in bodies of small series. Being a trained photographer gives me the opportunity to find beauty in small discarded (paper) patches of color, graphics or images. I work with rescued found papers (newspapers, photo’s, zines, old books), together with pens, ink, paint, pastels, tape, stitching, and nature elements. I find it satisfying to create a new image out of two or more parts of cut outs. Time stops while looking for a balance in color and form. Making a new readable image is very exciting. The process of puzzling together paper pieces several times before they finally fit together and become a new item can be very slow but impulsive. In the end, I try to create a new image that is based on several old ones but with a completely different meaning and form.
