STUDIO

 

ALS ICH CAN

2019 - 2022

Als ich can was research project in collaboration with Sophie Kuijken. Aside from the transmission of traditional painting techniques, this study also focused, in the spirit of the old masters, on an exploration of the durability of contemporary materials in building up the layers of an oil painting. Using modern SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) technology, with the assistance of the University of Ghent, microscopic imagery were obtained of the seeds of the plants that feature in The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, on which layers of oil paint could be carefully built up.

In the production of The Children of Minkowski, a mathematical formula generates algorithmic derivatives of a 3D scan of the human body, resulting in an infinite series of strange forms.
