“The book consists of a series of repeated gestures, often neglected and/or obliterated. Hastily drawn expressionistic heads and faces inspired by grotesques, caricatures, cosmic characters, urban nowheres, classical sculptures, and personal experience. Also there are a couple of abstracts obtusely rendered with marker pen, which integrate in the open narrative structure. The aim is to create psychedelic melancholia. I try to keep a balance between the crudely drawn and the more soft stuff, like being on an abandoned traffic island surrounded by lush vegetation.”
