A constant theme in the work of Jantien Jongsma (b. 1965, NL) is having encounters: when using her normal materials she accomplishes hundreds of meetings on paper. She may initially have had a vague idea about how and where she was to begin. The sheet of paper was given a basic color after which she began to draw all those elements and ideas that keep haunting her. There may, at times, have been a clear concept. But soon she began to realize that her work demanded something else from her, to which she gave in, with the result that many elements in her drawings make a spontaneous impression.
