Edwin Smet – Artist in Residence

In the three weeks of the residency –my project Wâlden now being in its second week – I will explore solitude versus community, the Frisian surroundings and dreamscapes, and, as ever, Time. I will do so via paintings, drawings, text and typography – ultimately a book. Masking tape, which is used in abundance in  my works – a mass produced material generally regarded as useless – is used as a building block. Like molecules or bricks this tape, in bits and pieces, is repeatedly stacked until something is created which can be seen as a landscape, formed by time and quiet attention. You can visit the studio  21-24 june and a larger exhibition of all eleven participating artists.
