For my artworks I find inspiration in travels to different countries that have included China, Mongolia, Honduras, Mexico and India. These find my interest because traces of their past have not vanished in daily life but are often left in their rough and original states. This differs from European countries where so much of the past seems covered, cleaned up and polished. I find it interesting to see how people have lived and are living now. Silent witnesses of human activities in the present but especially in the past. The history that can be read from finds such as old shipwrecks on a beach in China, activities of nomads in India. I call them 'archaeological observations' and the resulting work is a hushed residue. I want to pass on some of those observations to the rest of the world.
Jan Radersma & Marieta Reijerkerk - Unheard silence
Jan Radersma and Marieta Reijerkerk are two artists who have been members of Pulchri Studio for a long time. They have also been artist friends for over 30 years. Over the years they have exhibited together with this time the title ’Unheard silence’. For a long time they searched for what sums up their work at this point in the journey.
