Marianne J Jansen

In my drawn works I strive to capture the drama of human motion and dance in long, flowing lines. Working on large formats gives me the freedom to be involved in the act of drawing with my own gestures and body.
Both in my drawings and sculptures I focus on the vulnerability of humans; your vulnerability as well as mine. I am less in search of beauty and clarity of form than in shapes that express a feeling for the subject, or a thought, or memories in all their variety, before they dissolve in the flow of time.
My works are symbols that give shape to ideas, emotions and movement.
