Streiten

mixed media
various sizes
2016 - 2017

The works are based on a poem/text that Hendrik Werkman
wrote for his self-published magazine 'The Next Call' no. 9
in 1926, in his frustration towards his fellow-artist and Ploeg-members.
Werkman is one of my favourite artists and this text represents for me
the ongoing struggle of the artist about how, for what and whom and especially
the why of making art (and living live for that matter!).
But not to end on a negative note; it is worth it!
