After seeing the book I did with Inge Aanstoot, Barbara approached me to work on a book featuring her latest paintings.
Once we got together we instantly clicked. The briefing was simple: a book featuring Barbara’s works + any variations on those works I could come up with.
What instantly fascinates me about Barbara’s work is the fact that it has a ‘digital’ feel to it, although what she does is oil painting on pieces of MDF wood. Doesn’t get more analog than that. What we ended up doing is playing with the ‘Trompe-l’œil’ that is her work: are you looking at a painting? Or a digital reproduction? Or both?
This book was presented at OFF HOOK, Groningen on March 3, 2023 and comes with a A2 folded poster.
Comes with a folder A2 poster, featuring Barbara’s latest paintings:
