Agency Taverne has published a serie of photographs (taken by photographer Hans Zeegers) of my house where art, design and renovation merge in one project.
The (abstract) structures I create are very often connected to organic, recycled or neglected material. I find them or they find me..
This is where my fascination starts. Observing the transformations of light, events and people that surround me, I develop a materialized form that has to breathe a sense of freedom. Architecture and photography are important resources in this process. I also work with performances and videos in addition to painting and objects *
I consider, “el toko” as a “life project” that evolves constantly; the renovation of a historical building where art, design and production are present as naturally integrated elements. “el toko” is an interior-design project as a whole.
