“If you have a shape and make a hole in it, it becomes in the same way a letter or a building.” Jeroen Erosie
Varsi Art&Lab presents Jeroen Erosie’s first residency in its work space.
Last March we hosted the Dutch artist in our Lab for a residency dedicated to screen printing production in collaboration with 56Fili.
In his works, Jeroen Erosie pauses moments of disquiet, the lettering technique evolving over time and space on his walls and canvases, drawing inspiration and suggestions from architecture and typography that through the artist’s lens become one:
Using the sketches in his notebook as building blocks to create new projects, Erosie approached the creative process with the ability to let himself be guided and mix his own artistic research with the technical expertise of Arturo Amitrano (56Fili).
By combining the technique of collage with printmaking, using the paper as a mask directly on the screen and thus shaping the process to their own needs, Erosie and 56Fili managed to keep intact the possibility of reacting instinctively to each new move, thus applying the fluidity of pictorial language to an otherwise mechanical process.
Hence, the “Perpetual Masquerade” series was born, consisting of 6 limited edition prints in different formats, each of which narrates and concretizes on paper a phase of the research and elaboration path of this residency.
