Suus Kooijman

Encaustic (Beeswax, pigments)

Usually Suus Kooijman start with nothing, no idea, no color. It is the matter that asks what she should do. The warm beeswax, pigments and the layers build up into a presentation which often do not know where it will go. At least in the beginning. It takes some time until the image emerges. Everything hides in a background, when she start lay scraping, an image suggests. Does a landscape, a field, a man? She work through the layers and let amaze it every time. Going on in the process there arise, as it were multiple images on a panel. A landscape that presents itself to us, often wears unknown meanings. She try to explore meanings. What ultimately happens in the bottom layer of the images. LINK galerie de ploegh (in Dutch)
