Xylo - The title Xylo is derived from the ancient Greek word xulon, meaning "tree, wood, wooden object". Two pigments are made of charcoal and ash. These pigments are converted to two printing inks. To stay within the theme wood, I chose to make woodcuts. The eight different prints are independent of each other, but come from one whole. The concept of the prints can be compared to wooden planks. Wood planks are also made from one tree; once processed, they are separate from each other and are no longer considered as a whole. This concept is translated into a graphic abstract design.
The prints (40 x 50 cm) are for sale. If interested e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Each print comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Roest – An interest in the consumer society and her useless materials pushed me towards the making of a unique, changeable color. Inspired by the Nouveau Réalisme and its artists, I consciously chose for the transformation of rusted, lost objects to pigment. Using different processes, I came to creating my own ink, in two variants. If it appears that the ink – molded into a graphical concept – can rust again, then the circle is complete. In this manner we endlessly offer the waste products of our modern society material for making poetry.
300 Seeds per Inch is a magazine promoting the BA Visual Communication (BBV) at LUCA School of Arts in Ghent. The magazine gives more information about the degree course and reports activities and events, but primary serves as a showcase for the students, containing a broad selection of work and graduation projects. This project is a collaboration with Thomas Van Herck.
