belgium 12 / goodbye.

belgium 11 / ready to leave

After the three weeks residency in the in the printing studio of the Frans-Masereel-Centrum I collected and numbered my work - I am leaving perfectly happy. The bus comes late, but the train too; so everything is allright. Sarah and Paul that where here last week are leaving too.

A: Series about construction, trying to make prints there the layers more fit in each other as normally in silkscreen but not normal for my :-) I always like to make quiete loose compositions still "working" the picture out while printing. As a result I get pictures where I like the difference from one to the next, but there none is the same as well.

B: Illustrations for a text by Elias Canetti. It is about women selling bread on the market in Marocco, written in 1958. I made a leporello with the women on the street and single prints, which i actually like the best.

belgium 10 / the letterpress

The before last day of my stay in the artist residency I got very atracted by the letterpress with the wooden letters. A treasure! For me it is not so much about the print itself, but forming sentences - catching something that got stuck in your head, putting the words together from the letter case and then trying to fix them for printing. Thats a good exercise and experiment that I would like to continue.

belgium 9 / gent

A colourfull weekend in Gent! Much more day- than nightlife this time ... and a good chance to meet friends from my exchange in Gent, Anton and Céline again.
The exhibition photos are from the flemish photographer Stephan Vanfleteren with portraits of "Bekende Vlamingen" in the Wintercircus Mahy.
