Gallery of portraits

Who do you see when you look in the mirror? Or is the question, what do you see, when you look in the mirror? What makes you,  you. Is it your image? Is it your thoughts? Is it all biochemistry? The complexity of self-awareness is what I find fascinating. In my work I like to leave room for random twists. With spontaneous promptings and additions to what the image requires, the work grows into an unimagined image. Similar to life that gives us unexpected twists.

This series is mostly made with inks on fabrics combined with embroidery. New are portraits created as tapestry or gobelin weaving. In Dutch, we call it Beeldweven “image weaving’.

All images are @Paraaf Marjan van Holthe
