beat suites

The beat of a thrumming heart.
The dance of a warrior on the brink of collapse.  
Beat suites are nine suites of eleven drawings respectively, picturing boxers after the blow.
Each set of drawings is composed to baroque suites for viola da gamba. The fragility and melancholy of the music reflects both the beauty of vulnerability, and the power of resilience.

the prints

Reproduction has become an integral part of my oeuvre. I’ve developed and perfected a specific pigment printing technique to reproduce limited series of the 99 Beat Suites drawings. The resulting prints capture the tactility and the mood of the drawings perfectely.

The beat suites prints are framed in a handmade, elegant design that protects the drawings optimally against the forces of time. The framed prints make up a new body of art.
