About the Artist
Yvonne van den Herik (Sliedrecht, 1957), professional visual artist since 1986, lives and works in Maassluis/Rotterdam area.
Yvonne van den Herik makes drawings with brush and ink on paper and tape drawings (XL, directly on wall or glass wall). The black and white works find their origin in the mixing of (fragments of) earlier works, visual notes and explorative photographic works and above all – and again and again – question perception and the visual thought process. Lines, shapes and (a)rhythms originate from a ‘drawing look’ and vice versa: a direct, physical and visually intuitive process. Fundamental interventions such as connecting and disconnecting, merging and breaking open, play an essential role in this process.
Work by Yvonne van den Herik is currently being shown at Tekenkabinet in Amsterdam and in Studio Blooey / De Fabriek van Delfshaven in Rotterdam will soon be showing tape works.
