art, teaching


So now it has begun; together with the students and with Sigrid, my fellow teacher, I’m in the swing between different aspects of black and white; using graphite pencil on the immobile and flat paper surface to describe alternately movement and space; and turning white primer into black with pigments like emerald green, crimson and ultramarine as well as the distinctly different blacks.

I profoundly enjoy this kind of extended research, where a common issue is experienced, cultivated and understood through a range of temperaments.009-first-coating.jpg

And thanks to the students and Sigrid; being there, making it.
