ON PAPER BUTTERFLIES DON'T DIE
This second series of flowers is again inspired by the work of the master painters. It arose almost naturally because love creates the proverbial butterflies.
"On Paper Butterflies don't Die" the flowers have now been stripped of all colour and reduced to the most minimalistic; black and white.
As if it were the pen drawings that painters make before the brush with paint touches the canvas. With its thin lines, it forms a new perspective on the Ikebana art form and sumi-é (墨絵); Japanese ink drawings in which every superfluous detail is also omitted and reality is reduced to its pure, naked form without losing its beauty. That emptiness leaves room for one's own interpretation.
This series is represented by Elliott Gallery in Amsterdam
