Article in kM, october 2018
The newest kM, a full color professional magazine about artist materials, is all about collages. With articles about four visual artists. The opening article, written by Harald Schole, is about my collages. I feel very honored! KM appears every three months. One can buy it in professional art supply stores in The Netherlands or take a subscription.
“To me this is about how it is to be a woman, about sensuality, about to give life, to come from a mother who herself came from hers etc; so about where we came from, if we can believe Darwin we all came from te sea. The first animals in the world lived in the sea and some of these first animals can still be found there.”
This is my latest collage series. It consists of a combination of images from old magazines about FKK (‘Freikörperkultur’) from Germany (fifties / sixties) with books about ‘lower life forms’. The texts in the collages add value to the works. This time the collages are ‘cut and scanned’ (not pasted). I have been experimenting with using both sides of the images / pages. The whole series has been on show at the exhibition Atelier Open Papier, March 2019 at the Bonte Zwaan, Amsterdam.
Pages of women from old erotic magazines, hand cut and intertwined with pages from a house plant catalogue of the same period (sixties/seventies).
Resulted in a collage magazine, self published in a small one-time edition is out now! Now €10 per item (was €15), postage costs not included. For sale at the Stedelijk Museum Shop. Can also be ordered through me: firstname.lastname@example.org
