"Ex-posed" is a work in progress that contains a series of models from the network of the artist.
The works contains two parts. The original picture is printed on recycled patches, the pieces then get
stiched and exhibited. Not only in exhibition rooms, but also in the streets, nature, ...
By weathering the outdoor conditions, the work becomes a dynamic process.
In this project, the artist is in search of a personal vision of
beauty and truth and the impact of time on beauty.
All models are related to the artist. Fleeting acquaintances but also the closest friends. The project
is an ode to those who assist the artist in life and work.
"Ex-posed" can be taken quite literally (in the past posed), but also the definition in English is
important: the exposure, but also "not protected , not shielded".
The project contains studies on several formats and the large works (200cm x 90cm) (ie. 78" x 35").
