Bossert, Herman

From 2009 on Bossert cut off part of a drawing that hadn’t quite worked, and this gave him the idea of combining separate pieces, strips and even pages of a small sketchbook into a montage that is reminiscent of tile tableaux from folk art. The eye of the viewer is intrigued and surprised by unexpected transitions. Since then, Herman Bossert works systematically towards the montage, by saving cut-out drawings and producing numerous small drawings, which are gathered together at a later stage.
