#Tag Portraits – 2018.

A series of 13 works on paper

My visual comment on photo’s, taken by another artist, of all kind of victims. Deciding to make these portraits anonymous.  Looking now from a whole different perspective, one can also reverse the roles, ‘who is the victim and who is the perpetrator’.
A psychological game almost, intriguing.

This anonymity made me decide to transform these images back to who they might have been by concentrating on what I can detect and give them back a face.

#Tag Portraits – Transition 2018.

My visual comment on anonymous photo’s of victims and perpetrators and the knowledge that anybody can be in the reverse role.

I try to transform these images by concentrating on what I can detect and give them back a face.

Project Refugees 2015

To be named refugees as part of anonymous numerous groups that are wandering around in Europe and elsewhere around the world is one thing.

To be able as an artist to give these people a face is another.

This is my small contribution.
