In drawings shapes and spaces and their intricate interweaving are followed.
Both are sides of an earthiness underlying all works, referring to landscapes and spaces which can be seen as landscapes of our thoughts.
The title Stay put refers to a quote from the book One square inch of silence by Gordon Hempton and John Grossmann. This book tells about a man’s journey to investigate and preserve silence as a human right to be able to connect with ourselves.
