detail tapestry Janpeter Muilwijk 2011January 22  - April 14, 2011

‘In the first place I am drawing in this ‘winteratelier’. I took a car full of material, a large drawing table, tl-light and a table full of pencils and erasers, 100 cd’s and a table full of books.

There are 7 scenes on the tapestry about origin and aim and sense – a tour through life. Every week the drawings are displayed full size in the hall that just fits.

for a relaxing trip
Now I’ll sign off
and go ashore
and wish the new crew
a safe trip

from the diary April 8 2009

‘As usual first thing in the morning a look in the garden with glasses. Every pine needle holds a drop while the sun was far away in the fog. Long spiderweb fragments, sometimes as a hammock that was sucked inside, due to an obstacle like a leaf, like a navel in the skin. While rubbing a floortile, a polychaete came running to me. Time to go outside for a while. Beautiful strings of haze emerged from the loan. Before the camera was installed the ghosts were lost’
