Nine years later. In the meantime I have adapted the work The Correspondents from 2011 by giving the back side a fluor blue layer. The minimal presence of the color completes the work with a light blue glow.
In 2011, starting with one and the same letter, I have corresponded with five artists. The main question was whether one should reveal much about oneself as an artist or maybe not. Is it better to mystify one’s personality? Another question touched upon the impossibility to fuse with the other. The desire of becoming one is the base of this work. To fuse is a dream but commitments are possible. The big ellipse represents me, the smaller ellipse is the correspondent. The shape cannot be predicted, the radiation of the work is determined by the dialogue.
The works are different in form within a dimension of 60 x 60 cm, made of wood, cardboard, text, acrylic paint and magnets. In 2011 Artist in Residence KIK, Kolderveen The Netherlands.
