often asked: "Why this fascination for chairs?" All chairs have a logical and well thought-out shape and construction. To draw a chair, knowledge of perspective is indispensable. Representing space on a flat surface has fascinated me since childhood. The better you master it, the more you can play with it. Can the space also come out of the paper? Playing with assumptions we all have, our eyes not in the least! Chairs have a character that makes them very suitable for contemplation about people. Everyone has their favorite copy, right? All my works have a title that often surprises viewers and elicits a smile.
