Anouk Griffioen - Natur

Anouk Griffioen: 'A figure often creates a barrier between the picture and the viewer, who becomes a voyeur, standing outside. Instead, I want the viewer to be the figure.'

The artist Anouk Griffioen brings together different landscapes and subjects in monumental charcoal drawings. She creates a world into which the viewer can easily disappear. In her art, she addresses the conflict between man and nature, city and landscape and the ever-expanding growth of the cities that compromises the quality of life. By bringing vegetation back into the cultivated environment, Griffioen appeals to our deep-rooted longing for nature. It is the place to leave the beaten track, and come to new insights. Sporadically, a human shape seems to dissolve into the background. However, the figures never become explicit. It seems hard to believe that the enormous drawings are made with charcoal. 'How is it made?' That is one of the most frequently asked questions. Do you also want to know how these works of art are created, come to the Erasmus Gallery and see for yourself as Anouk Griffioen will create work on the spot in the next few months!*
