Johan Gelper

During my stay at Frans Masereel Centrum I was able to investigate the possibilities of silkscreen and litho, starting from a series of drawings with hybrid compositions. The printing techniques brought me abstracted pictural images, in which traces of fading figurative elements can be found. The silkscreens and litho's are, just like my drawings, never really abstract but never really figurative either. The possibility to come to a complete new image starting from existing drawings and the resemblances and differences with collage and drawing brought me to new directions within a creative process that is somewhere between 'ectricure automatique' and a constructed system.
