The result of an on-going research and curiosity for pattern and structures in my close environment, Cooijmans observes lines and shapes in the natural or constructed landscape that are traced back into autonomous signs. In their isolated abstract form these signs will trigger new meaning.
The heart of work consists mainly of unique prints and no editions. The ultimate printmaking characteristic of reproduction is consciously used to apply and exchange lines and shapes in different layers and different works. Embracing and playing the possibility of reproduction creates a new visual system.
