Galerie Helder

After graduating from KABK in 2015, I soon got the chance to exhibit my work and managed to find my place in the contemporary art of drawing, in an almost natural way. Working on paper is extremely important to me, because it is the purest and most direct form in which I can express my personal thoughts. Drawing literally allows me to give meaning to my existence and to portray the suffering that is indissolubly attached to human life. My visual language arises from the unattainable desire for people from times gone by and a feeling of homesickness, a longing for certain moments in my past. In my drawings, I give people and spaces I have memories of, a prominent place. This way, I also experience that the longing for the unreachable, conjures up a feeling that may never go away. It is precisely this feeling that I attempt to record in the drawing, hoping to rise above the meaningless existence.
