Model and portrait

‘I looked in the direction in which I was used to looking and there I found only pain, a loss, a kind of emptiness. I looked far too far and far too much at the outside of things. I realized that I was just looking the wrong way,’ inspired by the book The Found Light by Jacques Lusseyran.

This page shows a selection of portrait and model drawings and paintings I made. Because I take the human body as the starting point for my work, I make most of my portraits and models. You will therefore find more model drawings and paintings scattered over the other projects and especially at Searching for contact.
