Expand on mondeling was part of an elective of The Willem de Kooning Academy in which I started exploring and crossing the borders of the contemporary body. Sketching, painting and drawing different nude models over and over again during the course of a week. The aiming point was always the human body, but: revisit, visualized and seen through different eyes from different angles and viewing points.

Working on the same object I’d researched interaction, disruption and layers. Layering was the central theme of this elective. Layers in which shapes and form would appear and disappear. Not being afraid to destroy and rebuild every corner of the paper. The final work is the result of these actions: a massive painting on both sides.
