Residency De Lievelinge
The summer of 23’ for me will be remembered as one of sharing and creation. I was invited for an artist in residence period at Camping de Lievelinge. The three week period gave me the opportunity to create new work, amongst which a site specific installation.
For myself the main focus was in developing a new story for my drawing practice. Being in a new and fresh enviroment gives me the opportunity to really dive into something new without too much distraction. I have created a new series of drawings and painting in mixed media on paper and wood panels. The subject is a new friend called “Dinero” inspired on the world of vintage advertising mascots. The artworks were presented in a four hours lasting flash exhibition in the space that I have worked during the residency.
Dinero is the mascot of mascot’s, the ultimate representative of our capitalist society. He is the cover model, the brand ambassador, the celebrity face of the Dinero empire. Buying, selling, and trading, the possibilities are endless in the world of Dinero. Success and fame, sex and sun, eggs, soup and cheese. Indulge yourself in a great portion of what Dinero is serving.
