Eye and Upper Lip Sensations 1995 pencil on paper 43,9x60cm
Maria Lassnig

Text about Maria Lassnig at the exhibition (I saw yesterday) that impressed me so much:

Maria Lassnig has drawn and painted for over 60 years. Her trademark is the “Body Awareness Drawings”. She draws, as she says, “not the body as “object”, but the feelings from her body”. In these drawings Lassnigs questions her bodily sensations, the physiological underpinnings of her own existence. Paper acts for her as a corrective, as a mirror of herself, today just as it did 60 years ago. She mirrors the possibility of selfpresentation- sometimes seriously, sometimes wittily. Her inscapes and outscapes allow the viewer to come close up and still maintain a distance.

Hallo Marjolein,
Ik kan me indenken dat wat Maria Lassnig zegt over de tekening je aanspreekt. Haar opmerking is ook zichtbaar in jouw werk zoals in je nieuwe serie ‘foxgloves’; het vingerhoedskruid, giftig maar ook met goede medicinale eigenschappen. De fiere bloemstengels elk op papier ‘gevangen’ in hun eigen staat van zijn in jouw gevoelvolle handschrift.
groet-je
marja

Dank je wel, Marja, wat een lieve tekst weer en het is zó inspirerend om reaktie te krijgen.
Ik heb hard gewerkt deze dagen. Ze verwelken onder je handen, die vingerhoedskruiden en leeuwebekken. Je moet super-geconcentreerd kijken en tegelijkertijd in volle vaart op je hand vertrouwen…vreemde paniekgeur verspreiden die bloemen trouwens als ze vastgelegd worden.
