The drawing series Manifesto contains over 100 handwritten statements which are a result of a four-month artist’s sabbatical. The typographical drawings evolved parallel to my daily journal and reflect upon the past years of my being an artist; they serve as a guideline for what I hope to achieve and a guide to my beliefs. A selection of drawings are available as a riso print.
My drawings reflect what I experience, think, and believe. Constantly aiming to enter into a flow state of creation, the act of drawing becomes a ritual in which I manifest my encounters through my hands. The results are multiple variations of drawings that shift between abstract and figurative forms, between the known and the unknown. They always entail playfulness and curiosity, wilderness and tranquility. Each individual drawing exhibits a unique appearance. In endless constellations, they form my own fabricated calligraphy. The ever-growing archive of my illustrations has developed its own language and meaning, dissolving into multiple narratives in various mediums such as installations, performances, animations, publications, and workshops. Hoping to leave a trace on earth, my drawings strive to carry the marvellous colours of life, granting joy and appreciation.
