13work(ing)-on-trees

In january 2013 I started some new series of small (30x30) paintings based on recent drawings. I used six simple drawings of treelike figures. On this page you'll see these drawings and some variations, transformations and combinations of the 'characters' in this woodscene. Some images I consider 'sidetracks', some others 'results' because I discovered something interesting or got surprised by some development.
In a second round I transformed one of the six original drawings into a few new and even smaller (20x20) ones, planning to use them as a startingpoint for new work. At the moment the paintings are growing bigger: 50x50.

I try to 'find' and show the 'pictorial universe' hidden in some simple drawings. This of course is mythical language, actually I try to construct an interesting pictorial universe!
