Chatting about the humans who think they have such a big influence on the environment. Scientists are not sure yet but many are talking about it. Good news is no news so you almost never see it. We're too judgemental if that is correct English. Excuse me for jumping.
The world is not ruled by order or logic. As an artist, I am to show the dormant underworld beneath the varnish of everyday reality. I skim through books, the daily papers, and the Internet whilst taking notes of unusual facts, ridiculous tidbits, derisory accomplishments and disconcerting discoveries made as if to pass unnoticed in the printed columns. From such starting points I seek to build up the photographic image. However, sometimes when confronted with these eccentricities, I see that there is no need to execute these carefully schemed plans. I tell different stories yet at the same time and every story is connected as they are related back to me. My practice investigates the narrow links between reality and reliability, often with a focus on the strange relationship between beautiful environments and their inhabitants. I search for a plausible made world; one I can adjust to my view of it--an image on the verge of reality.based on a txt by Raphaelle Stopin.contact via: www.jaapscheeren.nl
