Arjen decided to go back to basics of the drawing and the possibilities of the line. How to be simple and expressive at the same time. Recognition in the images we create can evoke emotions, while constructions of forms occupy our mind. Balanced deformations of the things and beings in our daily lives, have a mysterious appearance and catches our attention, because it deviates from that what we are used to see. Our mind tries to clarify without result and we are continually fascinated. This is in his opinion the ultimate instrument of the artist. Arjen tries to work at the intersection of the simple and the absurd. This results in expressive and often humorous figures. The figures have a real appearance, but are of course artificial. Arjen is intrigued by the combination of facial expression, body language and simple stylized and geometrical forms in which he tries to get a monumental effect.
