Expand on Modelling
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.
