Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
"The Night-Wanderer expresses the longing to return to the place where I grew up, the bitter, salty wind smell of the sea, an imaginary return to the North-Sea of my childhood. This print is set in between the Lighthouse and the Kurhuis in Scheveningen, a make-believe place where I would wander in the night, looking for something, anything away from the restrictions of reality. The Kurhuis and the lighthouse are in fact not that close together, but both buildings are a signifier of place for me, the lighthouse whose light sweeps were visible through the curtains of our childhood bedroom and the Kurhuis, the ‘palace’ at the boulevard, a place of great magic, opulence, lights and music, a famous landmark."
