Siebrand

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Netherlands
The subjects of my drawings are inspired by themes from literature, with a preference for the mythological and surreal.

I like the patience needed in the processes of traditional art.
Together with the fact that there's no 'undo'.
There's always the danger of ruining a drawing.
Therefore concentration is most important.

My other love is handlettering.
Typography has more restrictions than drawing, so it demands more technical control (and concentration).
Interests
For 'A map, not the territory', I used Googlemaps satellite-pictures; as image source and for the composition of the drawing. By making a drawing of these pictures, I made it into a map. You might say that this is the objective part of the drawing.
I added abstract forms to the drawing, to represent my personal associations with the area, that the map is a reference to. So that would be the subjective part of the drawing.

As a map this drawing is useless, because the area this map refers to, and my personal relation to it, are not given. This leaves the spectator with the drawing as is.
