by way of the netherlands juul kraijer's work has come to give a visual language to many of the feelings swarming within me recently. the drawings are often focused on the female body and are sometimes coupled with natural elements such as veins and roots as well extra limbs or conjoined bodies. the drawings appear ghostly and delicate in their creation and have haunted me all day since i fortuitously stumbled upon the work. sometimes work like this corners you in your dreams and i have a suspicion this work will long be an inspiration. be sure to read the accompanying essay by the artist here while you're exploring the cabinet of drawings.
