Inhabited Hypercube
First attempt of painting on canvas. To keep things simple I started with painting some old sketches/ideas. These images are usually seen as introspective (although it has never been my intention) so I decided to let all titles of this series start with an 'I'.

One of the things I wanted to do during this residency is to try painting on canvas. So far I've never done this because of two main reasons.
1. My main subject is this basic human character, white with black outline. This is to have a strong contrast between the image and the environment. To have a 'sterile' image in 'murky' surroundings. But the canvas is clean as well, the contrast and tension are gone immediately.
2. Normally I try to make use of the surrounding area, it all becomes part of the painting. On a canvas there are no surroundings, the canvas is like a prison.
That idea of a prison became the startingpoint of this canvas painting. To create a box within the canvas. Finally a good reason to investigate paint and color.

Hypercube Habitat
Digital prints of drawings which I have shown earlier here on Behance.
Very hard to capture on film with all the light reflection.

The Hypercube Habitat series started as sketches for future canvasses, where the canvas is conceived as a box/confined space/prison. In every drawing a rectangular shape is added up, leading up to the 6 cubes of the hypercube.

A collection of sketches. An experimental unlimited edition poster, a print for the price of a (good) beer.
And a nice souvenir for the bureaucracy fanboys.
