Litho’s Zodiac

My project was: 12 characters in the Zodiac.

In 1994 I received a subsidy from the Prins Bernhard Fonds, Cultuurfonds voor Nederland, Anjer funds. I was then able to carry out this project in the German capital Berlin. The location was in the Druckwerstatt im Bethanien on Mariannenplatz, kulturwerk des Berufsverbandes bildender Kunstler. It was a great inspiring location. Young artists came all over the world to carry out their projects there. I was taken into the energy of that time. The wall had just fallen, everything happened in Berlin. Before that, I traveled to Berlin, where I worked for six months on this series of lithographs with the twelve signs of the Zodiac. Here too, influences can be seen from non-Western cultures, in particular those from Aboriginals and Indians. I was inspired by signs and symbols from different cultures because they have universal meaning and are visually very convincing. In addition, nature with its constant change and movement is a great source of inspiration. Just like my paintings that I had made in Berlin at the time. I always went here from a spiral that goes in and a spiral that goes out. The moving energy. You can see the spiral as the primordial element that we all come from. Every character has a story. And by playing with the effect around the stone of fat and water, almost watercolors were created. I kept the openness with my spontaneous handwriting. After the six months, the 12 characters went on a journey and were exhibited in Galerie Korbiens in Mannheim, Berlin, Amsterdam and elsewhere. And last 2018 they were exhibited again in the Abbey monastery, Rolduc in Kerkrade.
