What was one of the most normal things, touch, suddenly became strange, during the pandemic. There was a desire for each otherothers attention and the abnormal became normal.
Now, after two years of distance we may be closer again, we may begin to intertwine with each other again. But perhaps we falter now, as we figure out again what the relationships are like. Where the boundaries were first clearly visible, they are now shadowy and we are trying to rediscover them. Interweaving and touching can even feel tense and sometimes like a struggle.
The expo is together with the beautiful paper works of Loes Schepens.
Bird expo at the Goedman frameworks.

This month I am artist of the month at Kunstuitleen Voorburg.
