smoking nun

 

drawing of a smoking nun. The smoke from her cigarette says 'Do bad habits wear off?' and beneath her feet are the words 'Alles van waarde is weerloos' (Lucebert) which translates to 'Everything valuable is defendless'.
I draw tese life size pin ups during a period of three months - that is needed to do a detailed work of 2 by 1 meters. In that period I invite friends and eat, drink and work on top of the paper. This is supposed to symbolise the impermanence of beauty and well, everything.

 

 

maybe it's nice to see some photos of the process as well. just keep scrolling!

 

    My friends Bibi and Lae were kind enough to pose at various stages of the development
