The more I became involved in studying the monastery I focused on the relic altarpieces. They emanate a particular transcendent magic. From this experience, I developed my sequence “Holy Heads” which I am planning to continue. By working together with my colleagues Ann and Knut, I was able to translate my drawings into prints. Their perfectly equipped workshops allowed me to work in the techniques of etching, lithography and silk-screen printing. Also, I was given the opportunity of showing my works where I had created them. My solo exhibition in the rooms of the monastery was very successful.
During my stay, Jo Love, a graphic artist from Britain, was Artist in Residence in Bentlage as well. Her presentation on “Dust as artistic subject” was very inspiring and I enjoyed the exchange with the young artist. I am pleased to own an artwork of hers.
