Flotilla is a project consisting of three parts. The first part is an installation that was shown at RCArtfair Rotterdam in Februari. The installation contains 17 rectangle shapes. All of them are exactly the same size as paintings from 17 different painters.
The process of making a painting always starts with the choice for a size of a panel or a canvas. Intrigued by the repeating steps a lot of painters follow in the process of painting I decided to make a work with choices painters made, not me. I started with the hull of a wooden boat and I sawed sizes of paintings from the hull until there was not much left.

For the second part I choose two sizes that are important for my work. A4 and postcard size. Those sizes I used to make two editions.
The last part is what I am working on now; a publication about how the choices for the different measurements of paintings are made.
