How can you get close to yourself? Searching and longing to feel oneself frequently lead to trying to get under the skin. In the figurative and in the real sense. Tattoos and (self) harm pursue this goal, as do close-up photographs that come close to the surface of the body and show wrinkles, pimples and pores. The painting can turn the inside out through color and the line of the drawing creates a trace on the picture(skin) that let us feel - maybe even ourselves.
