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.

One can buy it in professional art supply stores in The Netherlands or take a subscription.

SERIES

Lebensfreude
“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 newest collage series, still working on it. 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) , as I am experimenting with using both sides of the images / pages. Work in process, it might become another book / magazine eventually.

Florialia
Pages of women from old erotic magazines, hand cut and intertwined with pages from a house plant catalogue of the same period (sixties/seventies).
