Description

Through clouds of very small black ink marks one can perceive an intricate pattern in red and blue colored pencil. Conversely, one can see an intricate pattern in red and blue colored pencil which is clouded over by a mass of very small ink marks. This drawing is the result of an experiment in putting layers of completely different drawings, which could exist separately, one on top of the other. I conducted this experiment with the twofold intention of slowing down the speed of my art-production and of directing and redirecting the eye of the viewer, in order to keep it focused on the image for a long time.
‘Cloud Formation' is a layered slow drawing. With the series of layered slow drawings I try to create a pictorial dimension which lies beyond any particular culture; a visual dimension in which people might shake off their cultural chains. Layered slow drawings have the following main characteristics. They are:

1. non conceptual – the aesthetic, material and technical concerns are fundamental

2. environmentally friendly – the process of creation prevents overproduction

3. accessible – easily to appreciate

4. unique – in the same way that the genetic code of a living creature is unique

5. inimitable - they defy imitation; they are incapable of being duplicated
