Noodzaak (Necessity)

When feelings cannot be put into words, drawings can do the speaking...This was certainly the case with Noodzaak. 


Noodzaak (Necessity) consists of a series of large-scale portraits, made with pencil and water colours.

These portraits are an exploration of the people around me and of myself through the use of materials.

Particularly interesting is the fact that Noodzaak paved the way for my later work, where content and form seamlessly merge into a story.


The creative process of Noodzaak was filmed and that footage was later turned into a video and sound installation.
