Until 1999, I painted on self-prepared and stretched canvas. Aka Regular Stretched Canvas (Museum Wrap). All the paintings in this series are 100% handmade. From the production of the canvases to the actual paintings. This also means that the works are not 100% even in size.

When you are present and silent. You can observe and hear a lot. Gerben was the boyfriend of my friend and fellow art student Ilse. Ilse is also in the series Pronunciations. He wanted to graduate from the university cum laude. And he finally did.
