Roos Holleman

Study skins, fly lures, masks and other curious objects dominate my pastel drawings. I consider my work to be exercises of attention: Studies of subjects, of their details, their being and their place in the world. Stroking is an act of affection. Drawing, creating a cacophony of strokes, connects me in that intimate way to my fascinations. They are subjects with a tactile exterior, but often with something going on underneath their surface. I am a kind of shaman, using crayons to blow life into un-living things. I am also a pathologist, performing optical autopsies on paper. Both are looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary and the ordinary in the extraordinary. The devil is in the details.

Roos Holleman (1989) lives in Copenhagen and works in the Netherlands and Denmark.
