“When I started to make collages with men in them I used images of masked men. Later I started using images of men without masks, but I covered their faces totally or partially: with brightly colored flowers, with butterflies, with beautiful animals. Some people asked me why, and I didn’t really have an answer. They were just like that.
Now I realize how powerful they are. How they own their own destiny and do just as they please. They are not following the decisions of a society where they don’t entirely fit in, but make their own rules and do what they really want regardless of what is expected from them.
At the same time, hiding beneath a mask gives them a sense of safety. They are not ultra-brave or ultra-macho. They are macho with something extra, macho with flowers on them.
Until November 19, 2016 I have an exhibition going on in Barcelona, which topped a crazy year in which I had six solo shows in several cities (Barcelona, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Rotterdam, Girona and Barcelona). Now I am taking some time to experiment and also to look for new projects where I can contribute, share and learn.” – Randomagus / 2016
