Els De Roo

I’m a young artist living in Ghent, Belgium. As an Art Major in Drawing/Art of Printing, my work consist mainly out of drawings, on various media. At the moment, the main focus of my work are my sketchbooks. Next to that I make large scale drawings and lithographic prints.

Color is almost non existent in my work, just like people. Our reality is my starting point for my drawings. However, the drawings always take over and I end up with a totally different reality of my own. The black drawings have a film-like quality. As if the actor has just left the room. There is an overpowering tension in the spaces I draw.

The many layers of black ink attack you. Page after page you cannot escape from it. Even in the blank spaces, there are traces of the aggressive black shimmering through the paper on the reverse side. Themes like being trapped in an overpowering multitude, the tension, for ever wandering, play a big role in my work.
