A collection of drawings, etchings, and textile works.

The starting point for this project were several drawings I made while listening to ‘Bloed, Zweet en Tranen’ (blood, sweat, and tears) by famous Dutch folksinger André Hazes. Afterwards, I started researching the elements that came out of these drawings. This evolved into an in-depth and intuitive theoretical and material research on lines, threads, and rhizomes. During the research, I became to realize gradually that it had, in fact, followed the same route as its subject. Just like a rhizome, it had expanded in all directions, on all kinds of levels - from making to thinking - smoothing the way for many more connections.
