Syb, 2013

Portrait of the founder of Kunsthuis Syb, Beetsterzwaag, The Netherlands. Markers and pastels on paper, pre-existing frame, 32 x 23 cm.

During a residency at Kunsthuis Syb, I’ve copied the framed photographic portrait of its founder Syb Hellinga, an artist whose last will was to transform his house in a space for artists. I’ve left my drawing in that frame, keeping the original picture just behind it.
