In the weekend of 24 and 25 March, drawings are presented by 20 artists under the title “Painting duo’s in De Kazerne” in Nijmegen.
"From the time of our birth to that of our death we are absorbed in the creation of our Personal Myth."
“When you are an artist it isn’t so important which country you are from or which language you speak. What is truly meaningful is what you stand for, your vision. What is it that you contribute to the world in which you live, what messages can others receive through your work and how can they enter into your reality and explore it for themselves? This conveying of your vision is how the precious link between you and the world around you is made.”
